About Aberfoyle Mill

The delightful interior of the Aberfoyle Mill is a constant reminder of its history. The Mill was built in 1859 by a Scottish immigrant named George McLean. The Mill Originally functioned as a grist mill, powered by the pond situated at the back of the building. In 1867, the Mill won a gold medal, for its oatmeal at the World's Fair in Paris. The Mill functioned until the late 1920's. In 1960 the Mill was purchased by the Owens family and after about 6 years of restoration, it was converted into one of the most unique restaurants in Canada.
