Duck Bay, Manitoba
Duck Bay was established at the turn of the century as a Hudson's Bay Company trading post, and is named after the bay on which it is situated. A gravel road to Camperville, Manitoba was completed in 1952.
A mystery surrounds the death of Father Darveau O.M.I.. His body was found on the shore near the village of Duck Bay and a monument marks the site. He either drowned accidentally or was murdered. The monument reads "Here was found the body of Rev. Fr. J. E. Darveau Missionary, born 1816 Massacred June 4, 1844". Another larger monument on the grounds of the Roman Catholic mission in Camperville reads "In memory of the Rev. J. E. Darveau, missionary. Born in Quebec, 17 March 1816. Massacred 22 miles north 4 June 1844".
