Gravenhurst: Early Days, Early Ways
Gravenhurst’s first 40 years involved lumbering, wildly successful while the trees lasted. A dash of agriculture failed, except for feeding the tree cutters. The railway’s arrival in 1875 provided an alternative to steamboats and encouraged tourism. Follow the evolution of a pioneering industrial community on the Canadian Shield.
