Old Fenelon Hospital

Believed to have been built in 1873, this Regency-style cottage has contributed to the history of Fenelon Falls. Opened in 1895 by Dr. Archibald Wilson, this early hospital was established so that it “might supply the need for nursing care of the sick and injured, especially the men employed in the mills and lumbering.”
