Leacock Museum National Historic Site in Orillia is among the area's most outstanding National Historic Sites. This remarkable landmark boasts beautiful gardens and scenic trails like the Orillia Millenium Trail and the Lightfoot Trail, which wind their way through Orillia along the waterfront. Designed by the firm of Wright & Noxon in Toronto in 1928, the museum's architectural grandeur reflects the success and renown of Stephen Leacock, a world-renowned author and esteemed academic. Known as Canada's beloved humorist, Leacock found inspiration in what he called Lake Simcoe Country. Inside the Leacock Museum National Historic Site, visitors can delve into an exhibit that explores the friendship between Stephen Leacock and Mary Pickford, the legendary silent film actress. Visitors can savour delightful food and beverages or grab some ice cream along the trails as an added treat. The picturesque waterfront along Lake Couchiching offers breathtaking views and a convenient place to pause during a paddle excursion and enjoy this local historical gem.
