Stephen Leacock, Canada's beloved humorist, spent his most creative time in what he coined as Lake Simcoe Country. In 1928, he built Leacock House at his lakeside retreat at Old Brewery Bay, where Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching meet. Leacock House, designed by Wright & Noxon, Toronto, reflected Leacock's success and prestige as a world-renowned author and a celebrated academic. It is now a national historic site.
