Description
Cooper's Falls (or Coopers Falls). For an in-depth write-up on this famed ghost town read the 1st entry or go to this online book link: http://www.ourroots.ca/e/page.aspx?id=1037942 (It turns out that Thomas Cooper actually farmed in north Rama Township for 12 yrs before founding the town that bears his name).

To see 2 photos of Cooper's Falls at its height of prosperity go to this link: http://www.ourroots.ca/e/page.aspx?id=1037942

Its nice to see it is not fully a ghost town and a few people do still in fact live there.

The Free Methodist church was built in 1894 but has since closed.

The St. George's Anglican Church and Cemetery, built in 1884, is still a functioning Church.

Hockey History:

The residents owned and took care of an outdoor hockey arena on the Cooper property through-out the mid-1900's...It was the most popular winter sport and they had a team to represent the village..They played larger centre teams such as Gravenhurst, Orillia, Longford and Washago..Before the arena was built they played on the river.. By the 1960's, due to a population decrease and waning interest in the arena's upkeep, it was removed.

The blue house, the one close to the road and immediately east of the general store has been demolished.

is that just north of the old general store? across a bridge over the river there does appear to be something there

A friend of a friend told me that there's another section of village farther back in the woods, behind the property with the trailer home.

Location shown on the map is incorrect, should be about 5km south, on Cooper's Falls Road.
