We have a new addition to our canoe ‘livery’ starting in our 2020 season. It’s a Mack Cunningham canoe from Bala. Known as one of Muskoka best boat builders, Mack Cunningham, along with his family, hand-built canvas covered canoes to rent in the 1930s and 1940s out of what is now known as Purk’s Place near the falls in Bala. The canoe donated to the museum is a wonderful example of one of the 16 ft. models, complete with a paddle and a single seat-back, both stamped WC to keep them with the rental canoes. Look for this beauty on display in our Feature Exhibit when the museum opens for the 2020 season.
