Embark on a journey through the eerie remnants of vanished communities scattered across Ontario’s picturesque cottage country with Ghost Towns of Ontario’s Cottage Country. Crumbling foundations swallowed by the forest, weather-beaten structures bearing the weight of time, and weathered tombstones piercing through the earth serve as poignant reminders of once-thriving villages now lost to the annals of history. Uncover the untold tales of these ghostly locales, stories that have long been confined to fading recollections and aged photographs.

From the rugged shores of Georgian Bay to the tranquil expanses of the Kawarthas, Ontario’s cottage country harbors a wealth of abandoned settlements, including farming communities from the settlement era, railway outposts, and logging villages. Within the pages of this captivating book, readers will delve into the past to unravel the mysteries of these forgotten communities, discovering the hopes and dreams that once flourished within their borders. Illustrated with dozens of photographs, many of which are historical and previously unseen, these ghost towns are vividly brought back to life.

Join author Andrew Hind on an unforgettable expedition through more than a dozen villages nestled amidst the districts of Parry Sound and Nipissing, Muskoka, and the Haliburton Highlands. Explore the echoes of a bygone era and witness the enduring legacy of Ontario’s lost communities.
