Huron Carol exhibit, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, Sainte-Marie
There are just a couple of years left to see a popular exhibit at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons located in Midland. Since it was installed in 2007, the Huron Carol exhibit, housed in the facility’s interpretive museum, has been receiving rave reviews from visitors. “It’s a big feature,” said Bill Brodeur, the media and marketing co-ordinator for Huronia Historical Parks, which oversees the Midland facility. “There’s a lot of interest in the Huron Carol.” The exhibit, which will continue until the end of 2012, covers about 450 square feet in the museum and includes a graphic panel of the book, a glass display case detailing the various versions of the Huron Carol as well as a video, simulating the original writing of the carol. The facility is an ideal location for the exhibit because it is believed that the Huron Carol, Canada’s first Christmas carol, was written by Father Jean de Brebeuf, while he was living and working at Sainte-Marie in 1643.
