About Grant’s Old Mill

The Grant’s Mill is based on a “Water Mill” near Sturgeon Creek which was drawn on a map made by mid-19th-century surveyor and map-maker, J.H. Hind. The main feature of this Mill, made by Cuthbert Grant in 1829, is the millstones to grind wheat and goes down in history as the first water mill to be built west of the Great Lakes. The current Water Mill, a replica of the original, was officially opened on 1975.
