Discover the Magic of Haliburton County

Ah, Haliburton County! A gem tucked away in nature's embrace, this place is a vibrant tapestry of history, art, and wilderness.

Then came the European settlers in the mid-1800s, weaving their own stories into the fabric of this land.

The county's name? A tip of the hat to Thomas Chandler Haliburton, a Nova Scotia judge with a knack for making people chuckle with his writings.
