Not sure why this isn't in the database but I'm guessing it's one of the most photographed Mills in Southern Ontario. I guess it's no longer abandoned but I'll just file it under historic. I have always wanted to see the inside of this place. It was built in 1833 and has been destroyed five times now. It was rebuilt after every fire and in 1899 the south wall had even collapsed into the river. The current building is after a rebuild in 1944. Interior renovations in 1974-1980 converted the mill into a hotel. Prior to this it had been a sawmill, distillery, flour mill, general store and used for cattle. Pearle Hospitality now owns the property and they plan to restore it into a high end hotel/spa and restaurant. Redevelopment is also planned for the south side of Grand River. During Doors Open this year the main floor was open to the public. Parts of it was gutted but it was nice to see the original stonework and wooden beams. Since I got some interiors I'm creating a location for this. There has to be some people that have older pictures, would love to see some other galleries posted.

Great addition Motley! Nice to see this place on here. That's the first time I've seen inside this place. Apparently it's haunted too..
