Welcome to Watson’s Mill

Watson’s Mill is a museum and historical centre that celebrates Manotick and its history. The building is an 1860’s water powered grist and flour mill built by Moss Kent Dickinson and Joseph Currier, who together founded the town of Manotick. Today Watson’s Mill continues to grind flour, using the same technology that existed when it opened. The museum encourages visitors to explore the past and helps conserve the Mill for the future.
