Come discover the Balmoral Grist Mill Museum, tucked away in a wooded gorge on the Matheson Brook near Tatamagouche, Northumberland Shore region. During demonstrations, see the mill in action, just as it would have been when Alexander McKay opened it in 1874. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of wooden gears, shafts and pulleys turning the original Scottish granite millstones as they turn grain into flour. Sample the flavour of oats toasted on the cast iron floor of the kiln. Treat yourself to the experience of a waterside grist mill from Nova Scotia’s past. Bring a picnic and linger in this shady and peaceful place. Ramble along the 1-km walking trail as it winds along a scenic gorge and mill stream. Mill pond preservation work may alter our program schedule. Please call ahead to confirm open times and availability of tours and activities.
