Other Sites to Visit

The Martintown Mill is the last remaining mill site on the Raisin River. Mills were built upstream of Martintown in St. Andrews West, and downstream at Williamstown, but sadly they have not survived. A small milling complex was also built nearby on the Beaudette River and became known as Munroe’s Mills, but it was largely destroyed by fire.
