History

In 1927, $90 was allocated to construct the original Kiosk cabin at a location north of the CNR tracks as headquarters for the rangers on this patrol. Previously fire rangers used the old J. R. Booth depot building; however the company had plans to re-open it that year. The actual cost of completing the 16' x 20' cabin was $84.76.

In 1933 the original cabin was rented to CNR for $10/month; no beds or stove included. In the fall of 1933, the Ontario Forestry Branch sold the cabin to a CN employee with the condition that it be moved. Sandy Gage, in his book, A Few Rustic Huts, states that in 1936 the present cabin was built at its current location on Kioshkokwi Lake. The kitchen was added in 1940 and hydro was installed in 1956 by the Hydro Electric Power Commission of Ontario.
