In the late 1800’s lumber companies were plowing through the old growth forests of Ontario making and breaking towns and villages … this story is about the effect of the Gilmour lumber company on the region from Trenton, Ontario to the Muskokas. The story of the larger than life Lumberbarons, grand projects, politics, successes and failures still captivate history on the power wielded by individuals in an apparent land of plenty.
