Walking to my Toastmaster club the other night I decided to take some pictures of Grant's Old Mill and the surrounding creek. The views are incredible this time of year.

We usually go twice a year. There is a group that has a small car show there, 2-10 cars involved. They have hot dogs & drinks. Also music and a few crafts. Not sure who puts it on though.

Between a hospital and Portage this little mill is a cute little place to visit. There are several places to eat in the area so you can grab and go it you wish.

I went to the grist mill after visiting at the Grace Hospital. There are lots of great paths around the Omand's Creek. The fall leaf display was perfect. The mill was not open. The grounds and building are well maintained.
