HeritageCherry Tree Lodge Sturgeon Point

Our heritage is an important part of all of our communities in Kawartha Lakes. Our historic buildings, villages and rural landscapes tell our story: they are a vital part of our identity and contribute to our community pride, fascinating history, character, and economic vitality. Throughout the municipality, you will see a wide array of unique heritage resources from our agricultural landscapes to our towns and villages to our industrial past.

Heritage preservation is an important part of the long-term growth of our municipality and a key contributor to our excellent quality of life in Kawartha Lakes. Administered though the Economic Development office, we conserve these resources through property designation, plans and studies, and guidelines for preservation. We administer the Ontario Heritage Act, the provincial legislation which guides heritage preservation in Ontario, and develop policies and guidelines to manage heritage in Kawartha Lakes. We offer a variety of resources for property owners to help them conserve and protect our heritage properties.
