Doors Opened in Delta, Ontario: Old Stone Mill

Open Doors Delta called us!

We visited the Old Stone Mill museum. Built in 1810, it is an amazing piece of machinery. The first of its kind in this area, the old beams, milled from solid huge piece of timber make the building very special.

The mill has artifacts of days gone by.

This makes a great shot, doesn't it?!
And cheaper than Clement's lake for G8!

View from the upper story - rushing water.

The size of the mill stones

The Old Stone Mill was first built on this site around 1796 by Abel Stevens, a loyalist from Vermont. AFter 1800 the property went to William Jones, who constructed this mill in 1810. One of the oldest surviving mills in Ontario it is an historic site.
