Boyde Beck - Bathygnathus Borealis
Boyde Beck, Mainstreet's historian, takes us back to the days of the dinosaur. In 1845, Donald McLeod, a farmer in French River was digging a well and came across a odd looking rock... with teeth in it. He kept it as a memento. As it turned out, it was more than a rock... it was a Bathygnathus Borealis. It became the first purported dinosaur fossil to be found in Canada, and the second in North America.
