Author T. H. Raddall's Cabin Destroyed
Award-winning author Thomas H. Raddall, in 1951, purchased a property in Moose Harbour and on it built a cabin.
It was there he would retreat to work on his novels, and there that he wrote The Wings Of Night.
The cabin, located next to a huge boulder that served as a landmark in the area, was destroyed in the 1955 forest fire.
