Of the many lumber firms that operated in the Cloyne area in the mid to late 1800s, the Gilmour Lumber Company was prominent. Based in Trenton, Ontario at the outlet of the Moira River, the large Gilmour mill had a voracious appetite for logs. In 1888 it was reputed that the Trenton mill had perhaps the largest cutting capacity in the world although it never had run at full capacity. This need for lumber necessitated the firm’s purchase of timber rights in the Algonquin area and to a lesser extent around the current Bon Echo Park area in an effort to keep feeding the mammoth mill.
