Maryboro Lodge is at the heart of Fenelon Falls. When James Wallis planned the village nearly two centuries ago, he had free choice of site for his estate and selected the ancient oak grove at the mouth of the Fenelon River overlooking Cameron Lake. Now a provincially designated historic site, the Museum is the place to start exploring Fenelon Falls. Located in Garnet Graham Beach Park on the Victoria Rail Trail, it is a short walk from shops, restaurants and Lock 34 of the Trent-Severn Waterway.

For generations after its founder had moved on, Maryboro Lodge remained a locus of public activity, hosting picnics, church functions and a was popular tourist lodge. Since it was the symbol of the village’s pioneer era, the Fenelon Falls Historical Society fundraised until it could purchase the property for the municipality in 1963.

Between 2010 and 2012 Kawartha Heritage, a successor of the historical society, restored Maryboro Lodge and added the Langton Gallery, in partnership with the City of Kawartha Lakes and Heritage Canada. The finish of the Langton Gallery was modelled after the parlour of Blythe Farm, home of John and Anne Langton. It hosts a special exhibit each season.

Hosting a permanent exhibit on the environmental history of settlement and special exhibits each year, Maryboro Lodge displays the most comprehensive collection of artifacts in the Kawarthas. It offers a pioneer school, social events, workshops, and Wednesday afternoon teas. Maryboro Lodge is open from Labour Day to Thanksgiving, or by appointment.
