Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 503. In Glamorgan T., Haliburton C., at the junction of C. Rds. 503 and 507 on Irondale R., 52 km. SW of Bancroft, 77 km. N of Peterborough.
  • Legend has it that the community's name derives from the largesse of a Gooderham Distillery salesman who gave a barrel of whisky to each of Pine Lake's three hotels, to be sampled by the woodsmen and farmers ofthe area.
  • The success ofthe ensuing party resulted in the renaming of the community. A more likely origin of the name is the generosity of Gooderham Distillery's president George Gooderham, to a subscription to build a Methodist church here.
