While staying at Arrowhead if you have the time there are many other places to see near and around the park. Places of interest and places to enjoy.
Dyer Memorial is a beautiful historical place we visit every time we’re in the Muskoka’s for the past 18 years. As each of our children now have experienced this historical monument and grounds we brought a couple more this past summer, two of our children’s best friends, friends I’ve watched grow up since babies. Where we go, they always are welcome to come with us, them and quite a few other kids I always miss dearly.
This site has been maintained ever since by Floyd Bartlett until his retirement in 2008. The grounds have since been maintained by the instructions left in Clifton’s will by other residents of Huntsville. In 2007 negotiations to maintain this site were commenced by the town of Huntsville and the estate run by another Detroit lawyer Barry King for the Town of Huntsville to take over the duties as caretaker. However in 2008 the town of Huntsville has decided not to take this task on since it would take a lot more funds than what the will called for. According to the Huntsville Forrester there was about $600,000.00 left for the maintenance of the land and they sited it would take over a $1 million to bring back to the pristine land it once was.
Lets hope that this landmark loved and visited by many can be enjoyed for years to come with hope that someone out there or business can contribute their time and not let this site deteriorate into the history books. A must see when visiting Arrowhead.
Voted as one of the top unusual places to visit in Ontario
