The Muskoka district, with its many wooded islands set among the crystal waters of a series of interconnected lakes, developed into a popular cottage and tourist resort area, earning Gravenhurst its nickname "Gateway to the MUSKOKA LAKES." The town was long a base for steamer service for the Muskoka Lks, and the paddle steamer Segwun has been restored to its original (1887) condition. The birthplace of native son Norman BETHUNE has been restored as a museum and national historic site.
