Museums & History

As Delta was founded in 1796, there is no shortage of history around each corner. This includes a significant number of buildings from past decades that illustrate the life of a busy and prosperous community:

The Old Stone Mill

A National Historic Site of Canada

The Old Stone Mill in Delta Ontario is a National Historic Site showcasing milling technology and 1800s industrial heritage. The mill was built in 1810 and is one of the finest examples of early industrial architecture in the region.

A self-guided tour of the mill features interpretive displays, an operating waterwheel, millstones, bolter, grain elevators, and artifacts illustrating the grist milling process through the years. Artifacts include burr millstones, 48-inch Swain turbines, roller mills

and much more.

During the summer guided tours are available featuring demonstrations by our summer staff,
