Watson`s Mill is a unique 1860`s working grist and flour mill, located in the heart of the Village of Manotick, on the shores of the Rideau River, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site. The Mill is a designated heritage building because of its architectural qualities and cultural significance, and operates as a community museum and living heritage site. It is part of the Historic Dickinson Square, which includes Dickinson House (the home of the Mill owners), the Carriage Shed (visitor services and public restrooms), the park-like grounds, a pioneer garden, Veteran`s Way and the Manotick Cenotaph.
