Alexander Bailey, a business pioneer in Bracebridge.
In 1864, Alexander Bailey harnessed the power of the waterfalls in North Falls (later known as Bracebridge) to power a sawmill and gristmill. This was approximately four years after the area's initial settlers constructed the first log cabin in the region.
Later Alexander Bailey built the Victoria Hotel and a store. The village was connected by a rugged development road called Muskoka Road.
Growing number of manufacturing enterprises were attracted here because of the hydraulic power available from the many waterfalls nearby. Water power was also an attraction for the lumber industry for their sawmills.
Room 102 did not exist in the original House. It likely comprised part of Room 101.
It wasn't added until until late 1940s to early 1950s, where the east extension of about ten feet when the House was extended to accommodate the addition of restrooms by the Allchins.
