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.

The shout of spring-Redbud

Redbud

Redbud

Signs of spring creep in at a slow pace, the birds start to trickle back, trees to leaf, and the grass becomes greener. Suddenly one day, it seems to bust forth with a rush and the main sign is the flowering shrubs. Forsythia first, and later lilacs and flowering dogwood. My favorite is the Redbud. This specimen has toppled in some long ago wind but still brings forth these gorgeous cascades of color.
