Aug. 1 to 4 -75th anniversary homecoming in Cranberry Portage. Prior to 1928, Cranberry Portage was little more than a portage in the route used by natives, explorers and adventurers. In the 1780s, the noted map maker and explorer, David Thompson, used this portage many times and on one of his maps calls Cranberry Portage, "Cranberry Carrying Place", indicating the profusion of low bush cranberries that existed 200 years ago. Although there was not a permanent trading post established, records show the Hudson Bay Company traded with the Natives at Cranberry.
