1199 Beford Mills

Started 9 am Saturday March 24th, 2012.
The restored grist mill in Bedford Mills on the Perth Road just south of Westport dates from around 1832. It shares the same name as the town in Frank Capra's movie "It's a Wonderful Life". Settlers were an intrinsic part of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere along with the ample natural resources. The peace and solitude of the 19th century would have indeed made it a wonderful life although there would have been challenges for sure!
