Thanks to our friends at Parks Canada, below are some interesting facts about Little Lake...
1. Adam Scott built a sawmill and grist-mill in 1818 on the south edge of Little Lake and the settlement of Scott’s Plains would eventually become Peterborough. Lock 19 in Peterborough is named after Adam Scott (Scott's Mills).

2. Richard Birdsall Rogers—the designer of the Peterborough Lift Lock and former superintendent of the Trent Canal—is buried in the Little Lake Cemetery, and his gravestone faces the Lift Lock.
