Sault Ste. Marie

Sault Ste. Marie is a city that cherishes its roots; known as the Soo you will see a revitalized downtown, an amazing waterfront and a parade of summer festivals celebrate the diverse cultures that make the city what it is today. But we are also the gateway to world class outdoors, in the heart of the Cambrian Shield and on the shores of Lake Superior and Lake Huron. Enjoy all the amenities of a modern, urban city, while not foregoing the quaint charm and warmth of a Northern Ontario community. We have been called the Gathering Place for centuries, join us and find out why.

Water Tower Inn

The Water Tower Inn is a full-service, independent and family-run Inn in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. For over 45 years, they’ve been one of the most recognized and respected Sault Ste. Marie hotels and local gathering places. Their welcoming staff and generous guest features will immediately make you feel at home.

Sault Ste. Marie Golf Club

In 1919, then President of Algoma Steel, W. C. Franz desired a golf course. The land next door to his cottage was selected. George Cumming, the pre-eminent Canadian golf course designer of the early 20th century, was commissioned to design the original 9 hole Sault Golf Club in 1919. Stanley Thompson, widely regarded as the foremost designer of golf courses that Canada has ever produced, redesigned the course and added a further 9 holes in 1952.

Many course upgrades have since taken place. Although a relatively short course—less than 6800 yards from the back tees—Thompson’s routing made the best use of Sault Golf Club’s small acreage. The strategic use of water hazards, ditches and Clark Creek make the course interesting and gives a feel that it plays closer to 7200 yards.

Bushplane Museum

What better way to explore the history and adventure of flight and forest fire protection than with a visit to the Bushplane Centre? Located in beautiful downtown Sault Ste. Marie, this waterfront hangar offers more than 62,000 square feet of interactive, hands-on aviation and forest fire exhibits.

The Machine Shop

In 1894 Francis H. Clergue arrives in the Sault by steamship. He establishes  the Sault Ste. Marie Pulp and Paper Company Limited. By 1899, Clergue’s competitors cut their prices by 25% in an attempt to force him out of business. Clergue fought back by producing a superior product: pulp with reduced water content. Clergue and his engineering department developed a machine to extract much of the water content making it lighter and less costly to ship. When none of the existing paper machine manufactures would produce the machinery to his specifications, he erected his own machine shop and foundry to create the machines he needed. These two operations produced all of the machinery used in the pulp mill.
