Lount Township

 

Lount is a geographic township in the Unorganized Centre Part of Parry Sound District in Ontario. The communities of Bummer's Roost, Rye and Wattenwyle are located in the township. It was originally settled by the building of the Rosseau and Nipissing Road which cuts diagonally through the township. 

Lount Township was named in 1874 for William Lount (1840-1903), Liberal member for Simcoe North in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, 1867–71, and for Toronto Centre in the House of Commons, 1896-7. He was subsequently appointed a judge in the High Court of Ontario.

 

Lount is also part of the Almaguin Highlands region.
