Boshink Narrows

Boshink Narrows, ,

The slim navigation link between Upper and Lower Stony Lakes just west of here is known as ‘Boshink Narrows’. In the late 1800s, County Council considered building a bridge in this area to link the new Colonization Road in the north to more developed areas in the south. Concerned with its impact on steamships and logging, Robert C. Strickland (a leader in both industries) led a seemingly persuasive site tour for Council in the fall of 1875. Never again did the topic appear in Council minutes. Instead, a bridge was built at Burleigh Falls, establishing the popular route between Lakefield and Apsley that is still used today.
