They Both Loved The Present-Day Site of Chad’s Island So much They Bought 5 Acres From The Crown at The End of Their Trip. The Land was Still Part of The Mainland in Those Days. The First World War Started Before they Had a Chance to Return to Muskoka. Chad was Killed in Active Service in 1918 and When Walter Returned from The War, He Discovered that The Trent Severn Waterway had been Pushed Through Resulting in Him now Owning an Island. The Island was named Chad’s Island in Honour of his Brother on which he Built a Lighthouse on The Point as a Memorial. The Original Cottage was built in 1919, the existing Boathouse in 1921, using Wood Reclaimed from the Flooded Land Behind The Island. The Island has Remained a Bark Family Cottage for 3 Generations, Passing from Walter to his Youngest Son John in 1978, then to John’s Eldest Son Chad in 1996. John Tore The Original Cottage Down in 1992 and The New Cottage was built on the original site with plans drafted to have a similar appearance as the old, just a little bit bigger. (id:46976)
