Description: The second gate in Iroquois was located at the limits of the woodlots of the Fraser Companies in the Green River forest at the Québer border in 1960. We see a sign asking visitors to prevent forest fires. It was to control passers-by and the risks of forest fires during the summer. A watchman would stay there all summer long.
