Friends own the old 1873 grist mill in St. George, Ontario.

It looks a little different now because they installed a tower at the back, which would hide the stairs in the above view. The tower houses an elevator.
It was water powered and some of the old wrought iron flumes are in the cellar. I have a piece that he cut out of where the elevator shaft was installed.
I knew the family that ran the feed mill at the last. There is one son still living who is in his 90s. I would have been lost trying to work in there back then because there were grain legs going everywhere. I would have had oat chop mixed with corn meal and molasses in the nut and bold rack!
Today, Tansley's coffee shop is on the ground floor, a veterinarian office on the second, offices on the third, and a meeting area on the top floor. There is a loft at top too.
