Description: Visit the last remaining mill on the South Nation River and discover how the Spencerville Mill adapted from a flour and grist mill serving the community’s needs to a feed mill serving local farmers and feed stores throughout south eastern Ontario.Main level exhibits, the machinery and tour guides will help you gain an understanding of this busy feed mill operation during the 1930s.Visitors to the main level will see a single roller mill, double roller mill and plate grinder that have been part of the mill’s machinery for more than 100 years.By the early 1900s the single roller mill was being used to crush oats for poultry and livestock feed. When the turbine is running this roller mill operates for display purposes.The milling artefacts displayed are all original to the Spencerville Mill.The lower level remains much as it was when the mill ceased operating in 1972. The 1934 Charles Barber 110 horse power turbine restored in 2007 operates on a regular schedule.Exhibits have been developed in the lower level to reflect local trades such as cobbler and cheesemaking. More exhibits are being planned for the lower level.The mill proudly hosts special events throughout the year showcasing local artisans and musicians. Beginning in May with the Canoe Poker Run and culminating with A Country Christmas Remembered, fund raising events make the mill a fun and lively place to visit.The park is an ideal place to relax and enjoy a picnic or take-out from a village eatery. The Spencerville Mill is a perfect site to begin a leisurely canoe or kayak trip up river.
