Babcock Mill

Constructed in 1856, this mill was originally owned by the Booth family. It was intended to be a gristmill but because the railway transported cheaper flour, it became part of the family’s woollen mill instead. In 1907, the mill was sold to the Babcock family who used it to make beautiful baskets. Today, the mill is owned by Loyalist Township.
