Fenelon Falls is rich in native and pioneer history. More than 10,000 years ago Paleo-Indians inhabited the area. 2000 years ago came the Southern Woodland Indians, hunters who set up temporary camps in the area. In 1615 when Samuel de Champlain traveled what is now the Trent-Severn Waterway, Huron Indians had camps throughout the region. Unlike the previous tribes, the Hurons relied on both hunting and agriculture to survive.
