Mystic Theme~~~~~Outside Beauty Down by the Old Mill Stream

by Art Bee February. 29, 2012 7014 views

Apps’ Grist and Flour Mill, located on Robinson Road, just outside of Paris Ontario, was built in 1841 and purchased in 1858 by Charles and William Apps. The Mill was run by an undershot water wheel that was replaced by turbines in the 1920’s. The mill was very successful and was eventually taken over by Williams’ sons Alfred and Albert. The family ran the mill for almost 100 years until Whiteman’s Creek flooded during Hurricane Hazel in 1954, undermining the dam that diverted the water into the mill. After trying to keep the mill running with insufficient water flow for two years, the brothers finally closed the mill in 1956.
Today Apps’ Mill is owned by the GRCA and is a conservation area and teaching center.
