The Town of Gravenhurst Heritage Walking Tour is designed with reference to material from previous walking tours and the texts listed. Although we strive for accuracy, we are unable to verify all information. If you would like to learn more about the Town of Gravenhurst please consult these local historical references at the Public Library.
Gravenhurst is the Gateway to the Muskoka Lakes. First settled in 1861, it soon gained prominence, first as a transshipment centre from stages to steamboats and later as a major lumber town and boat building centre.
The Gravenhurst Heritage Walking Tour is brought to you by the Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce and the Gravenhurst Municipal Heritage Committee. Financial support for this project has been provided by:
