|Welcome to the Township of Ryerson|
Welcome to the Township of Ryerson, located in the District of Parry Sound, where life, history and nature are bridged. The Township is made up of six well known communities; Midlothian, Doe Lake, Starratt, Wiseman’s Corner, Cecebe and Bordeau.
The navigatable waters of the Magnetawan River and Lake Cecebe played a great Part in the settlement of the area and today still play an important role encouraging tourism and cottage development. Historic points of interest include the Wiseman Corner’s School House, S.S. #4, Younger’s Landing (a steamer stop on the Magnetawan River), the Swing Bridge on the Midlothian Road and Echo Rock where a Steamer sank.
The Township of Ryerson is situated in the east portion of the District of Parry Sound in the Province of Ontario. It is a beautiful area containing several lakes and the Magnetawan River winding its way through the township from East to West. The River at one time was the main means of travel as the steam boats navigated the waters.
