Muskoka Falls: The Village, 1859-2018
More about this Book
In earliest days of Muskoka colonization, the District’s most central place was also its most spectacularly beautiful. Two colonization roads intersected here, just where Muskoka’s most dramatic waterfall plunged a hundred feet down a rock faced chasm. More than once, plans were drawn up for a burgeoning community, sometimes called Muskoka Falls, othertimes Muskokaville. Author of the locale’s history, Patricia Stott-Prince, who grew up in Muskoka Falls, calls the place “The Town that never grew.”
Her history is, instead, that of a fine and lively small village. The book’s 16 chapters recount, with rich personal detail through successive eras from 1859 to the present, wide-ranging stories about the falls, the roads, the people of the village, the special activities of Muskoka Falls women, the school, church, and cemetery.
