This year, the Watson’s Mill team decided to continue our annual Christmas Market, but in a new way! Many of our favourite vendors have returned to offer their beautifully crafted works to our Mill family. Come shop with us and support local!
While online shopping may be new for some, we’ve made our virtual market an easy way to support our local artisans and find your next holiday gift -all while following physical distancing regulations.
Seasonal Closure and Bookstore
Watson’s Mill is now closed for the season! Thank you to everyone who supported us this year! We are so grateful to our entire Mill Family for helping us make this season a success while following our health and safety guidelines.
We have exciting news! The bookstore will remain open on Saturdays and Sundays from now until December 6th!
Our wonderful team of volunteers have decided to keep our beloved bookstore open into the beginning of December. On weekends only, the bookstore will be open from 10am-4pm. They accept payments of exact cash, debit or credit. We look forward to seeing our Mill bookworms there!
Watson’s Mill is a museum and historical centre that celebrates Manotick and its history. The building is an 1860s 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 while helping visitors explore the past and conserving the site for the future.
