A heritage building, a collection and a conservation site on the Indian River in Lanark County, Eastern Ontario. The Mill of Kintail offers so much to see and do. It is Lanark County’s biggest public attraction, in my opinion.
On June 10th, I had a chance to spend the afternoon getting my healthy dose of nature while hiking the fabulous trails of Mill of Kintail. The fresh air was crisp, the birds were singing and I was completely relaxed and at peace. I continued my walk along the Indian River where students have done stream studies, soil profiling and wildlife habitat. This truly is the perfect place to bring your elementary school classroom to study!
Friends of my family wanted an outdoor wedding and actually had their ceremony and wedding reception held in one of the fields within the 154 acres of Mill of Kintail. They have a section designated specifically for weddings because it has become a very popular destination for this kind of occasion.
The Mill of Kintail proudly presents the lives of two important Canadians who were born and raised just around the corner from it. Their museum retells the stories of Robert Tait Mckenzie and James Naismith. Dr. Mckenzie and his wife were both artists. He created sculptures and she wrote poems. They used the Mill as their summer home in the 1930’s. Dr. James Naismith was the inventor of basketball. The historic building that the museum is in is absolutely beautiful and the view of the river from the top is breath taking!
If you are looking for a fun, educational, family oriented place to visit, I highly recommend the Mill of Kintail. The trails, canoe rentals, play structures, and picnik areas are every reason why I chose to visit and blog about this amazing place.
That is why I have chosen to visit this local land mark.
