More from Muskoka Heritage Village

The 2 photos below are of a seasonal camp that the First Nations people would have made in the early 1900s. I just LOVE the blanket! Looks like a great place to take a nap too.



The photos below show what a typical trapper’s cabin would be like. This one is a reproduction round log cabin. Fur such as beaver, muskrat, raccoon, wolf, marten and mink were harvested off the trap lines. The trapper lived here and stretched and dried the hides. They were sold locally or taken to the Fur Auction for export to Europe.
