The French River was the main Water Highway to the west in Canada from 1600 to the mid 1800's. The Ojibway Indian name for the river is Wemitigoj-Sibi (French River). The early French explorers gave the river the name la Riviere des Francais. The Champlain Trail is now known as the French River, or just "The French".
