Carrying Place by Grant Karcich
Being sensible, European settlers followed the long-worn paths of Iroquois and Huron-Algonquin natives when finding their way to land grants north of Lake Ontario, establishing many namesake settlements along the way. One particular route, known as "Scugog Carrying Place", starts at Oshawa's Second Marsh (Oshawa and Farewell Creeks), ending at Beaverton on Lake Simcoe, traversing Port Perry and Lake Scugog along the way. [Note: Oshawa means Carrying Place.]
The Toronto and the Quinte Carrying Place routes served a similar function.
CLOCA (Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority) compiled a local watershed historical document in 2009 called:
