Up in Flames: The History of Fire in Muskoka Region

Creator(s): Muskoka Lakes Museum

This Community Stories exhibit illustrates the terrible impact of catastrophic fires on Port Carling and the surrounding Muskoka region in Ontario. The disastrous town fire of 1931 destroyed nearly all of Port Carling's main street, wreaking economic devastation in a town already reeling from the Depression and a downturn in tourism.
