Location of the mouth of the Henley River in Ontario

The Henley River is a river in Kenora District in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.[1] The river is in the Hudson Bay drainage basin and is a left tributary of the Albany River. From 1768 until 1850, the majority of its existence, the Hudson's Bay Company Henley House was at the mouth of the river; prior to that, it was on the opposite (left) bank to the confluence of the Kenogami River with the Albany River, just 8 miles (13 km) upstream.[2]
