Discovery Harbour traces its roots back to the original British naval and military base in Penetanguishene, built to safeguard access to Upper Canada after the War of 1812. “His Majesty’s Naval Establishment on Lake Huron”, (as it was first called) kept ships prepared to supply British posts to the northwest. By 1820, it was home to over 70 people, including sailors, officers, shipwrights, and soldiers. Five large ships, 15 smaller vessels, and numerous workshops and dwellings were built. In 1828, a British garrison on Drummond Island was relocated to Penetanguishene. By 1834, Canada was defended exclusively by these forces. An impressive stone Officers’ Quarters was built in 1845. The military occupied the site until 1856.

Here at Elsie’s Creek Farm, Quality and Flavor are our number one concerns. A typical maple syrup season starts around the end of February where our family plugs the drills in, cleans out the lines, and taps over 1200 hardwood maple trees at our farm. From then until mid April, our natural wood fired evaporator does not stop turning the sap we collect, into award winning liquid gold maple syrup. After being filtered more than 16 times, through gravity fed filters, the maple syrup is tested and then bottled. After this long process it is ready to enter your home and be poured over pancakes, oatmeal, or any breakfast food for that matter. Although there are a lot of long days and nights spent in the sugar shack, our satisfaction is met through the comments we receive after a bottle of maple syrup is opened. Carl and his wife Rebecca started producing maple syrup in 1999 and have since expanded their operation to over 1200 taps, raised two sons who intend to expand the business further, and have won over 20 top place ribbons at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.

Hutchinson Maple Syrup is a family-owned and operated maple syrup farm. Orval, Doug, and Michele, with the help of their family, turn the maple sap that flows from their hardwood maple bush into sweet maple syrup to share with you! In 1974 Orval Hutchinson began producing maple syrup in Oro, Ontario, using cast irons pots with only 200 taps. From 1975 to 1988, Orval with the help of his family and son, Doug, expanded to 800 taps and moved his operation into a sugar shack with a wood-fired evaporator. Fast forward 23 years later, when Doug and his wife, Michele, purchased a sugar bush on the 5th Line North of Oro-Medonte, it wasn’t long until the evaporator was once again fired up. In 2012, Orval, Doug, and Michele began making maple syrup as a “hobby”. Because they love to share their sweet maple syrup with everyone, Hutchinson Maple Syrup has grown from 300 taps to over 1600 taps with the maple sap flowing through their gravity pipelines and, of course, into buckets.

The Ramara Historical Society was established to research, document, collect, classify, preserve and edit material illustrating the founding, settlement and development of the former townships of Rama and Mara, which is the geographical area now known as The Township of Ramara and the Chippewas of Rama First Nation. In 2004 a group of interested residents met to form the Ramara Historical Society. The initial goal of this small group was to discover and protect printed materials pertaining to the history of Mara and Rama Townships including the former Rama Reserve. After a few years membership outgrew the Ramara Centre meeting location and we were fortunate to be sponsored by the Township of Ramara for our meeting space at Udney Community Centre where we also have a display case which houses our developing library. For ten years members have met regularly to share information, display personal artefacts and welcome speakers on various topics of historical interest. We have also enjoyed tours of nearby locations which have preserved their history. To inform the community of their heritage we have sponsored experts for our Speaker Nights and taken part with displays and information at many local events. Our collection has expanded to include […]

Ontario’s first European Community, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons was the headquarters for the French Jesuit Mission to the Huron Wendat people. In 1639, the Jesuits, along with French lay workers, began construction of a fenced community that included barracks, a church, workshops, residences, and a sheltered area for Native visitors. By 1648, Sainte-Marie was a wilderness home to 66 French men, representing one-fifth of the entire population of New France. Today throughout July and August, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons is pleased to offer fun and informative demonstrations and “hands-on” activities that share aspects of life in the 17th century, including 17th century fire-starting, historic clothing and medicine, native games, 17th century music, historic cooking, and more.

Saskia and Hans Sloeserwij arrived in Canada from Holland in 2008. As they adjusted to their new life in Canada, they found themselves missing the European style cheeses they grew up with. Back in Holland, Saskia and Hans created amazing cheeses using local ingredients and traditional European processes, but they couldn’t find similar products in Canada. They felt like the Canadian market lacked “authentic, traditional, European cheeses”. In an effort to fill a gap in the market, Saskia and Hans took it upon themselves to create those cheeses that they missed so dearly, calling their new business Say Cheese. Say Cheese uses the same process for its sheep cheese as is traditionally used for making Gouda. Their sheep cheese is produced as a medium firm cheese which is similar to the Dutch Gouda.

Library services in the village date back to the 1800’s when this was an Indian Village called Gis-se-nau-se-bing (cold river) and lending books brought from Scotland were kept in the Indian Agent’s home. Several other village locations housed books before the present library was built in 1937, as a memorial by the Sheppard family, to their parents Wm. Sheppard and Mary Ellen Buchanan. An additional two rooms were added in 1986-87, one being the Foster Meharry Russell Reading Room, a memorial gift from the family of this former Coldwater newspaper owner.

The Simcoe County Museum was created in 1928 by Women’s Institute members Mrs. C.P. Stocking and Mrs. R.A. Sutherland. The collection was first displayed at the Barrie Public Library, then the Barrie Registry Office. In the 1950s, the County of Simcoe took responsibility for the collection, and the first wing of the Museum was opened on Highway 26 (at the current location) in 1962. Over the years, the museum has grown significantly, and now is composed of a five gallery facility with sixteen outdoor heritage and display buildings. At the Simcoe County Museum, we believe that our visitors should be able to experience history first hand in a museum that is engaging and exciting. Come to the Museum and discover the stories behind our collection of over 30,000 artifacts!

This first Streets Alive! event featured jury-selected artists transforming large-scale vinyl banners with their art live on the street.

The top four artists earned substantial People’s Choice cash prizes, and their banners joined the Festival of Banners collection for prominent display in Orillia. The project has grown each year, with more and more artists vying to get involved and word of our incredible artistic endeavours spreading farther afield. 2010 featured giant guitars.
