Cobourg, situated on a sandy stretch of Lake Ontario with the rolling hills of Northumberland as a backdrop, was founded in 1798 by United Empire Loyalists. By 1900 Cobourg was the most popular summer resort in Canada, with more than 2,000 summer residents. Many built homes here, some on a palatial scale. Cobourg continues to be a popular tourist destination.
The Economic Development and Tourism Information Centre's offices are in the house in which 1920s film star Marie Dressler was born. The offices contain Dressler memorabilia and life-size wax figures of Miss Dressler and co-star Wallace Beery.
A farmers market featuring locally grown produce operates 8 to 1 on Saturday, May through December, at 2nd and Albert sts.; for information phone the tourism office.
