memories-from-main-streetMemories from Main Street Coboconk by Eleanor White MacNeil

Do you remember to Coboconk Knickerbockers? What about Lavida’s Ice Cream Parlour? Or Byrant’s Gas Station? Did you ever ride the Stoney Lake cruise ship up the Gull River? Whether you have these memories or not, you can read about what life was like in the bustling little town of Coboconk in Memories from Main Street Coboconk. Researched by Eleanor White MacNeil and Karin Mackie, and compiled and recorded by MacNeil, Memories from Main Street is an oral history project that will hearken you back to the days the kilns still fired and Pattie’s House roared with the rugged shouts of lumbermen, log drivers, and quarrymen.

Memories from Main Street Coboconk by Eleanor White MacNeil is available to reserve at the Haliburton County Public Library.
