Did you Know?
Beginning in the late 1850s a substantial canoe building industry grew up in and around Peterborough. The Peterborough Canoe Company was founded in 1893, with the factory being built on the site of the original Adam Scott mill.
Canoes continued to be a major industry in the area right up into the 1960s. You can experience the canoes history at the Peterborough Canoe Museum, where they play host to the world’s largest collection of canoes and kayaks. Take a trip through the history of the canoe and its importance to the Canadian culture.
Our rich mix of heritage city, cottage country and flourishing farmlands – unique in Ontario – will make your visit something out of the ordinary, and in the coming weeks we will share more about what you can expect from Peterborough & the Kawarthas this June... stay tuned....
