Ranger Cabin

History

This cabin was built in 1932. It originally contained a Findlay Norway cook stove which has now been replaced with a CSA-approved wood stove. It, like many other cabins, was used by Park rangers patrolling their areas. A new roof was put on it in 1939. Road access was made possible in 1953 with the construction of the Ontario Hydro Line. In view of the road access, the cabin was extensively used by Park canoe rangers and timber technicians carrying out their duties in the area. In 1993 the cabin received extensive repairs with the finishing touches being put on it in 1996.
