We’re pleased to announce the release of Chapter 3 in Greg Pyke’s series on The Bob Lake History. This chapter covers the genesis of Haliburton’s villages – circa 1848 through 1860.
For those needing more to satisfy their itch for local history, the CBC has released For Heaven’s Sake this week: an 8-part documentary about Harold Heaven who lived on Horseshoe Lake and mysteriously disappeared in 1934. It was filmed in and around the Minden area during the winter of 2020 by Harold’s great-great nephew trying to solve the family’s 86-year mystery. Pamela and I caught the first three episodes tonight and give it two big thumbs up!! You can stream it for free on CBC’s GEM (here).
