This watermill known as the Grant Cuthbert Old Mill occupies the site of the Red River Settlement’s first mill built in 1829.
It was established by Cuthbert Grant, leader of the Metis at the Battle of Seven Oaks. Grant’s Old Mill is open to the public and provides a glimpse of a real working water powered mill. Organic grain grown locally, freshly ground triticale, rye, whole wheat, buckwheat flour and pancake mix, as well as other souvenirs, are sold on site. The area surrounding Grant’s Old Mill is perfect for picnics or just enjoying the sun.
