Ufford isn’t a typical Muskoka community. The Three Mile Lake settlement is unique in landform and has a character that can’t be simply defined. At points, one can see a little bit of Ireland or an enchanting vista of England. When the first settlers came to claim free land grants, farms began to rise from the hills and valleys. Many old barns can still be seen driving through Ufford today.
One of the most picturesque communities in Muskoka, Ufford was an inspiring settlement site for the early settlers to Muskoka. A memorial plaque in the Ufford church yard commemorates the first church built in Ufford as well as the pioneers who first settled in the area in the mid 19th century.
