     History
    Founded by John Richard Harris in 1867. The original wooden structure burned and was replaced by the current stone building in 1884. After John Richards death in 1899 it was passed on to family and operated successfully until 1925 when competition from larger Mills in Toronto and Hespeler caused it to close. The Harris family sold the building to the Grand River Conservation Authority in 1958. In 1967 another fire damaged most of the building and now all that remains is a stone shell.
