History of the Southeast Georgian Bay Region

In the early 1600’s, the first Europeans came to the area, with fur traders and French missionaries travelling from the St. Lawrence to Huronia. Samuel de Champlain canoed to Georgian Bay in 1615. In the late 1700’s, Canada was transferred from French to British control. The British feared an American invasion and the area along the Severn Route was improved and surveyed in an effort to protect the country and its fur trade. Lumbering opened up the region from Collingwood to Midland, Waubaushene, Honey Harbour, Port Severn, Severn Bridge and northward to Muskoka and Parry Sound. Later, around the turn of the twentieth century, the Georgian Bay region became a mecca for tourists. It was then that Didace Grise built the Royal Hotel in Honey Harbour. The Grise family also developed and operated the well-known Delawana Inn.
