Kennaway was one of the original pioneer settlements in Haliburton County, and existed from the 1860's until its final collapse in the 1940's. What caused nineteenth century pioneers to attempt to farm the rocky soils of the Canadian Shield? What happened to the hardy folk who chopped farms out of the ancient forest, dragging log and boulder alike from fields that were then used to grow a slim variety of crops? What can the ghostly remains of their log cabins and tools tell us about how Haliburton's founding families lived their lives? Kennaway: The History and Archaeology of a Haliburton Ghost Town answers these questions and many more.
