Description From Owner:
- Pop. 2,421. In Cochrane Dist. on Hwy 101, 2 km E of Timmins. The place was first called Aura Lake but was renamed after Ohio druggist Frederick Schumacher who bought and sold property on the townsite.
- One of his deals involved selling 8 acres (3 ha) of land to Hollinger Mines for $2 million. In his will he left $1,000 annually to provide Christmas presents for local school children, and the practice continues to this day.
- Little else is known about the Danish-born reclusive patent medicine millionaire from Columbus.
