Some History of Muskoka

Muskoka Facts

Muskoka is home to over 900 lakes, the largest ones being Lakes Rosseau, Joseph, Muskoka and Lake of Bays. Those four lakes take up 30% of the lake surface in Muskoka.

Muskoka is made up of the regions of: Bracebridge, Georgian Bay Township, Gravenhurst, Huntsville, Lake of Bays Township and Muskoka Lake Township.

Some of the rocks in Muskoka have been dated back as far as 1.5 billion years.

One of the original steamships is still running and is currently offering passenger cruises.The first resort in the area was built by William H. Pratt and was called the Rosseau House. Guests came from all over England and North America to visit.

The first inhabitants of the area were the Algonquin and Huron tribes. The name “Muskoka” is thought to have been derived from the name of a tribe chief named “Mesqua Ukee”.

While tourism during the Great Depression and WW2 declined, it started booming again after the war. People started to vacation in Muskoka once again, because going to a war ravaged Europe was not an option.
