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.

The mill features interpretive displays, an operating waterwheel, millstones, bolter, grain elevators, and artifacts illustrating the grist milling process through the years. You can tour the mill yourself or enjoy a free guided tour.

During the summer we grind heritage wheat into flour using our 200 year old millstones. Our stone ground flour is available in our small Mill Shop which also offers interesting mementos of your visit.

History of the Old Stone Mill

The Old Stone Mill is the only surviving pre-1812 stone grist mill in Ontario. Built in 1810, it followed the design of an automatic flour mill created by American inventor Oliver Evans. It has some unique features, including having acted as its own dam. You can learn all about the history of the mill by visiting our History Page (and by visiting the mill to actually see and touch history)


We rely on the personal generosity of our volunteers to be able to maintain and showcase this remarkable example of Ontario history. We ALWAYS need more help. See our VOLUNTEER PAGE.

Thanks

The Old Stone Mill and the Old Town Hall are owned and operated by The Delta Mill Society, a self-funded, non-profit organization run by volunteers. Accordingly, we have lots of people to thank for helping us get to where we are today. See our Thanks Page for full details.
