Delta Mill – Milling Demonstration

3

 

The mill stones will start turning at 1 pm, grinding heritage wheat into flour.  Come on out and see how top quality flour is made.

The Old Stone Mill, built in 1810, is a National Historic Site of Canada that is owned and operated by The Delta Mill Society, a non-profit organization.

The Old Stone Mill at Delta was built by William Jones and is one of the earliest surviving, fully automatic, grist mills of Upper Canada. In 1817 the mill was described as “unquestionably the best building of the kind in Upper Canada”.

This National Historic Site is a proud reminder of the industrial heritage of Eastern Ontario. In 2005 the newly renovated mill was enhanced with beautiful interpretive signboards and displays, in 2007 a water-wheel was installed and in 2010, working millstones and a bolter were put in place.
