Our “Scugog Experience” Booklet

Take a tour of the Scugog Countryside with Historical Anecdotes. The Lake Scugog Historical Society has published a booklet entitled “Scugog Experience.” This booklet will take you on a scenic tour of  the Scugog countryside. However, there is another journey to be taken here – a journey into Scugog’s past. The historical anecdotes provided in this booklet are intended to give you a brief glimpse of the time when the villages and hamlets of Scugog were first settled.

As you take your tour, pause for a while and picture what it was like those many years ago when life was at a much slower pace.  Estimated time of tour is about 2 hours and visits Caesarea, Nestleton, Cadmus, Blackstock, Prince Albert, Manchester, Utica, Epsom and Greenbank.

The booklet can be purchased at Books Galore in Port Perry for $2.00.
