KENDALL – In this picture from around 1890 we see people relaxing at the Ontario House. Located at Troutburg on Lake Ontario, north of Morton, this was a resort destination.

The Ontario House provided lodging, dining and entertainment. A summer hamlet of cottages were built here beginning in the late 19th Century.

The Ontario House was destroyed by a fire in 1940.
