Back side of Balls Mill in the middle of a paint job
I LOVE it when my husband and I are searching for something and something else wonderful pops into view! We were looking for a conservation area (we found it) but on our way we happened upon an old mill in the midst of being renovated.
Fence behind heritage mill in Baltimore, Ontario
Front side of mill
In its latter days of operation, this mill was indeed a flour mill.
Built in 1842
But in it's earliest days it was a carding (to make yarn) and saw mill.
The original clapboard, painted white
Apparently the building has also housed a cooper's shop but has also been used for storage.
A peek through one window but mostly reflection
I hope I get to go inside one day to see what's there!
