The Old Stone Mill in Delta Ontario is a National Historic Site showcasing milling technology and 1800s industrial heritage. The mill was built in 1810 and is one of the finest examples of early industrial architecture in the region.

A self-guided tour of the mill features interpretive displays, an operating waterwheel, millstones, bolter, grain elevators, and artifacts illustrating the grist milling process through the years. Artifacts include buhr millstones, 48-inch Swain turbines, roller mills and much more.

During the summer we grind heritage wheat into flour using our 200 year old millstones. A small gift shop provides interesting mementos of your visit, including fresh bread (available at 10 am every Saturday) and flour.

We're Grinding

The mill stone is turning! After many (many) months of hard work from our staff and volunteers the operating mill stones and bolter were installed in time for our big 200th anniversary celebration in June 2010 (see the celebration photos). We're continuing work to add new features and need your support. See the Mill Restoration Page.

Grain grinding schedule for 2014 TBA (see Events Page) - come out and see how flour used to be made.
