  • Pop. 233. In Chapman T., Parry Sound Dist. on the Magnetawan R. and Hwys 510 & 520, 56 km. NE of Parry Sound.
  • F. H. Baddeley of the Royal Engineers explored the area in 1835. Settlement did not start until the Nipissing Rd. was cut by the Dodge Lumber Company from Rousseau to Magnetawan in 1873.
  • By 1879 there was daily steamboat service from Magnetawan to Burk's Falls and from Magnetawan to the foot of Ahmic L. The routes were joined by a lock at Magnetawan in 1885.

  • In 1872 the govemment adopted an immigration policy that offered subsidized steamship fares and free inland transportation to European settlers.
  • Elise von Koerber was one of several special agents appointed, and by 1877 she had brought several hundred Swiss to this region of Canada.
