Charles Haines, the original settler of the area, built a wooden gristmill along the Credit River in Cheltenham in 1847. It is not certain that this is the mill that is referred to but I have not located any information otherwise.

Chippewa Falls are easy to get to, they are right beside Highway 17, about 50 km. north of Sault Ste Marie. There is a small park with parking, and a short trail to the Falls. The upper falls are a short vigorous walk uphill, which takes a bit of rock hopping.
