Harrington Gristmill: Ontario’s Old Mills

Filed under: Mill,Ontario — Tags: , , — Harold Stiver @ 6:00 am

Built as a gristmill in Harrington by a United Empire Loyalist named D.L. Demorest. It initially operated by an overshot waterwheel but this was replaced a water driven turbine in the 1880s. It operated from 1846 until 1966 with a couple of interruptions due to a 1924 fire and dam breaks in 1903 and 1949.

German Woolen Mill Ruins: Ontario’s Old Mills

Near Glen Morris, this mill was built by Alva and Sydney German in 1867. The old building is said to be haunted. This may be due to that drowning death of a young girl while it was a mill and the murder of a guest when it was a lodge.
