Muskoka Store Walter Page came to Canada from England in the last century when he was a boy, as an apprentice stonemason. He put his building skills to work in the growing city of Toronto and established a construction company, Walter Page and Son. Page built some of Toronto's landmarks, including U of T's Hart House and he worked on portions of Casa Loma. An adventurer with a passion for the wilderness, Page discovered the pristine beauty of Muskoka on canoe trips from Georgian Bay. He decided to buy land here - an area that came to be known as Page's Point - and in 1911 he built a summer cottage, Pine Cliff.
Over the years Page continued bulding additional features that expressed his own skilled craftsmanship and the pleasures of outdoor life - pagodas for viewing the scenery, rafts for the children to play from, sturdy white pine furniture for the dock. Today, Walter Page's descendants continue to summer at Page's Point, where the original cottage has grown into ten separate family properties.
One of those descendants is Walter Page's great-grandson, Bruce Walter Page Clark, who own's Walter Page's Muskoka Store.
