Famous Canadian artist, David Milne, lived on Six Mile Lake and used the beautiful landscape as inspiration for his paintings. As part of a Canada 150 legacy project, volunteers moved his small cabin to the Bressette homestead in Port Severn. Restorations are planned so that the inside of his cabin will be safe for public viewing.

The Art Gallery of Ontario produced the video below to share the artist's own words and images from his time in the Township of Georgian Bay.
