The S.S. Meteor steamer played an essential role in developing the Temiskaming region.  The S.S. Meteor was a passenger steamboat that operated on Lake Temiskaming during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Meteor was an impressive machine, with a five-foot flywheel, electricity, running water, and a lounge on the second deck for music, cards, and an observation area. The Meteor was also the largest steamboat on Lake Temiskaming, and the only passenger steamer on the lake until 1899. It provided a vital lifeline to the outside world for people from the region; there was no train service or useable roads in the north until 1905. The Meteor served the communities on both sides of Lake Temiskaming for 40 years.
