  • Grounds are pristine and rich in history. A magically beautiful place and educative experience. A great example of natural history and national culture. There's a daunting but captivating love story that happened in the past there that's true, and eerily haunting. At night its transformed, and has an especially ghostly presence.
  • It's a great place to come visit and check out some of the history from Ottawa.the mill can be visited during the daytime and on the weekends and has three floors full of machinery on grinding grains. I really the place and I think it is a great place to visit, you can sit by the river and enjoy the ducks and the water go by.
