Who We Are

A working grist mill from 1874

Discover this three-storey mill tucked away in a wooded gorge on Matheson’s Brook. See grains being ground, sifted and turned into flour just as they have been since Alexander McKay opened this mill in 1874. 

Bring a picnic and linger in this shady and peaceful place. Hear the mill stream splashing as water tumbles over the dam. Ramble along the Christine MacDonald Walking Trail as it winds along the brook.

Please note

Actual milling of flour occurs on an ‘ad hoc’ basis. However demonstrations of some aspects of the mill machinery in motion is generally available throughout the day barring any mechanical problems.
