Sutton Mill

Andy | Saturday, June 08, 2013 | | Best Blogger Tips

The first settler was James Bourchier who built a saw and grist mills on the Black River. The mill was completed in 1820 and operated until the 1950's. It presently operates as a country store and florist.

The dam is still in place. You can find the mill in Sutton, Ontario, Canada.

  1. On the first photo it is impossible to see the works that are necessary to run a water mill. Perhaps they are removed but what stays is a not so interesting metal clad building. I think that the owners of the mill could make more of it then this.

  2. Very charming - I love old mills! I'm glad it's still being used as a store.

  3. I'd say that the old mill has been repurposed with a large dose of charm. It's a beautiful site to welcome visitors to a country store.

  4. Love the old mills, but it is sad that they no longer operate to grind grain, produce flour, or other products. At least the building is in use.

  5. I am especially fond on older, mechanical things and this fits the bill. I'm happy the building is being used.
