BE A PART OF HISTORY

The Wilberforce Lumber Company was established in the early 1900’s as timber harvesting company and evolved into a wood veneer and wood furniture manufacturing operation.  The Company built a sawmill along the rail line south of Pusey Lake, which is now called Dark Lake close to Highway.   Over the course of 30 years the company grew and acquired lands in Haliburton County to feed their busy mill operation.  Eventually the company was separated into the land holdings and the mill and the partners went separate ways leaving these vast land holdings under the stewardship of a private family for over 60 years.
