Mapping in Muskoka 1867 – our recorded past charts our future.
We celebrate Canada’s 150 birthday this year with a tribute to Map Makers, Surveyors and our First Nations. Our interactive exhibit will have some of Canada’s oldest maps of Muskoka on display, equipment used in 1867, our First Nations harvesting families and early portage routes. The stories of David Thompson and many other surveyors that charted the lakes of Muskoka will be a special highlight of the exhibit.
