McLachlin Grist Mill Memorial

In Arnprior on the north side of Madawaska Boulevard opposite where it connects with Daniel Street North on the west side of the Madawaska River stands a grist mill turbine memorializing the McLachlin Grist Mill that once occupied that location.

McLachlin Grist Mill

This water turbine was recovered
from the 4 storey stone grist mill
constructed on this site by Daniel
McLachlin. The mill continued to
operate until 1895. The building
was destroyed by fire in
September 1975
