This is the corner of Hwy 35 and North Shore Road. It used to be called Ox Corner, said Leigh Sisson, because an ox used in the road building, had died there. Source: Varty - Boshkung Lake Memoirs, The Boshkung Lake Millennium Book Committee, 2001. pg 140
Victor McBrien and his wife Placida (Plac) built McBrien's Pines which became Kinsmans Cottages. They rented to highway workers in 30s -$1/day room and board. Victor bought the island at the east end of Halls Lake. It was then called McBrien's Island. Victor put in the causeway and built cottages there. Every time he sold a lot he would buy a new car.
Later bought by Kinsman family and renamed Kinsman Cottages.
