Behind the Painted Door

Formerly a Salvation Army Church, this is one of the oldest buildings on Gravenhurst's Muskoka Road. Built in 1885, it has a proud history of serving the community for over a century. It is one of the few buildings that survived the great fire of 1887, when many buildings on both sides of Muskoka Road were destroyed.
