From the recording Half Way There (Marc and Bradley Audet)
"Half Way There" tells the story of a historic depot farm and stopping place on a tote road that accessed logging camps in Algonquin Park. Xavier Pilon operated this remotely located farm “Halfway House” in the late 1800s, growing food for the lumber camps and making repairs to sleighs and wagons that traveled the tote roads for decades. It was a very busy place during the square timber era.
