There were lots of staff available for tours on the Wednesday that I showed up there, alone. The young student that showed me around was able to answer all of my questions and the staff were versed not only on their own Mill but also on the mill I know best, Watson's Mill in Manotick. Clearly, they were not just... More

We were guided round this restored mill by an enthusiastic and knowledgable summer student. The mill itself has been wonderfully restored and still grinds on certain days. We came away from the experience thoughtful of the early pioneers and the hard work which has made our country today.

We made the trip to Delta from Gananoque along the Rideau Heritage Route. It was a pleasant rural drive of about 40 minutes and the destination was a gem of a find. We were at the mill on a Saturday and there were several volunteer interpreters ready to show us around. We spent a very informative hour with a local... More

This site has been restored to the highest standards, the mill works, and you can buy locally raised traditional red fife wheat ground for your baking pleasure, and sometimes you can buy fresh bread too. The site hosts a variety of events throughout the year and is a showplace in North Leeds for interpreting the history of early 'upper Canada'

En route from Smiths Falls to Westport this is well worth a stop. Beautiful reproduction of mill life - not stuffy at all!. Sells great bread and baked goods.

This historic building was renovated a few years ago to close to it's original condition. Located on High county road #42 between Westport and Athens. A bit out of the way but a beautiful trip of only about 20 minutes north of Athens. There are stairs but I didn't notice if there is any other access. You can watch grinding... More

Following a tip, I asked for a guided tour and got a pleasant and informed companion for half an hour. I got a history of grist mill technology and I learned how wheat gets from the farm to the flour bag. The old mill is well maintained and cared for.
