History of Our Cottage

Martha and I purchased our family lease where we have brought up our girls for the past 20+ years along with my extended family.  My grandmother, Kathleen Blackburn (nee Brown) and her brother Brock Brown first purchased the lease in 1929, as their parents, Gordan & Ethel Brown, would bring them up to the Highland Inn every summer.  Granny Kay and Uncle Brock decided they wanted to spend every summer in Algonquin Park and found our lease, which was originally owned by a fisherman who made a small shack in 1917 that became our original cottage.  Since that first 1929 summer, Granny Kay spent every summer on lake, bringing up her and Grampa Allie’s two children, my mother, Susan Osborne and my late uncle (my mother’s brother) Ian Blackburn.  My mom continued on the family tradition spending every summer at the cottage
