South River

South River is a village located on Highway 124 near Algonquin Park in the Almaguin Highlands region of the Parry Sound District of Ontario, Canada. It is about a half hour drive south of North Bay or a three hour drive north of Toronto. South River claims to be the second busiest entrance to the Algonquin Park. South River is also the home of Mikisew Provincial Park on nearby Eagle Lake.The South River railway station was served by the Northlander six days per week until autumn 2012.Logging in the area began in the 1860s, but it was not until 1881 when the first settlers, Robert Carter and his wife, arrived following the completion of the Grand Trunk Railroad. Within a few years, they opened a general store and the new community, located on the eponymous South River, had hotels, a bank, a butcher shop, and jeweller. The river itself provided the power for a sawmill and grist mill, while also being used for log driving. In 1907, the village separated from Machar Township and was incorporated, with W.J. Ard as first reeve.Private dwellings occupied by usual residents: 461 (total dwellings: 507)
