Fodor's Review

Readers of Canada's great humorist Stephen Leacock may recognize Orillia as "Mariposa," the town he described in Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town. Leacock's former summer home is now the Stephen Leacock Museum, a National Historic Site. Among the rotating exhibits are books, manuscripts, and photographs depicting Leacock and the region that inspired his writings. In the Mariposa Room, characters from the book are matched with the Orillia residents who inspired them.
