Martin found Muskoka to be a Special Place but spent only a year living in there after he arrived as an immigrant from the UK in 1862 with a free land grant. He loved the wilderness as it was and it shows in many paintings he produced of that area. Both permanent and seasonal residents have long treasured the areas glistening lakes, aromatic pine forests, thundering waterfalls and dense maple forests that turn to crimson and gold in autumn.
