Haliburton County was established 6 June 1874 and originally consisted of townships taken from Peterborough County (Snowdon, Minden) and Victoria County (Lutterworth, Anson, Stanhope).
Haliburton County was named for Canadian Historian Judge Thomas Chandler Haliburton.
Settlement in the area began when roads were built through the district, and from nearly the beginning the main industry was in lumber.
"On May 18th, 1980 the provisional county of Haliburton erected to full county status."
Haliburton County is located in South-Central Ontario.
