Found at Shrine Hill Lookout, on Shrine Hill Drive, runs off Highway 60. East of the village of Wilno.
This memorial was erected in the year 2000, by the Millenium Memorial Project Committee. A stone base with a metal plaque, overlooking the Shrine Hill Lookout. Site of a large cross, an Ontario Historical Plaque dedicated to Canada's first Polish settlement, and a plaque to recognize those injured on the job. This is a beautiful location, especially on a clear day, the view is spectacular. Take time to stop for a visit, and pay your respects.
