Caisse Memorial Theatre, new secondary schools and expansions of Nipissing University and Georgian College.

History of Bracebridge

In early days, Muskoka was built on fur trading, forestry (logs and tan bark), farming (reason for the Muskoka /colonization road) and water. Water for hydraulic power to turn the wheels of industry (saw mills, grist mill). Water for hydro electric energy, water for transportation and water for recreation

The falls were the reason Bracebridge grew when many other Muskoka settlements did not. North Falls was the end of navigable water on the Muskoka River and the best place for the Muskoka Colonization Road to cross the North Branch. The junction of road and water thus formed was the nucleus of Bracebridge.

A village in1875 and a Town of 1889, Bracebridge is the official business, and very nearly the geographic, center of Muskoka.
