It was an arduous task converting the old stone Alton Mill into the arts centre that it is today. It is one of two remaining stone mills built in the early 1800s and here reflects the nature that surrounds this heritage site that is home to artists’ galleries, a heritage museum, shops and cafe. You can read more about the history and galleries of this unique space here.

  1. I like the sign on the chimney ; the reflection is very nice too… Nice sharing !

  2. Mills are an important part of our history, both in the US and Canada. I always like to see them restored and put to use, especially if that use includes history.

  3. What a marvelous looking old building and terrific reflections for the day! I really like the different textures you can see! Hope you have a great weekend, Lesley! Enjoy!
