On August 15, 2018 we will mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the steamer Kenozha. Built at Gravenhurst, she joined the Muskoka & Nipissing Navigation Company fleet in 1883.

In the July 14, 1887 issue of the Toronto paper World, Kenozha was “said to be the fastest ship on the lakes.” She carried 250 passengers, including in 1884, the Marquis of Lansdowne, who was touring Muskoka in the company of A. P. Cockburn.

Muskoka Steamer Historian, Richard Tatley will make the night of August 15, 1918 come alive, as he did in this sketch.
