Old Mill Heritage Centre & Post Office Museum

The Old Mill Heritage Centre building was originally a pulp mill built in 1925. The pulp was shipped by freighter to the United States to be processed into paper for Sears Roebuck catalogues. Later the mill was transformed into a hydroelectric generating station that supplied the island with power. The building now houses multi-media museum exhibits and the Old Mill Studios that do audio and video productions for families and organizations. Call 705-282-1442 for information.

The Heritage Centre features evocative exhibits with an abundance of artifacts that reflect the history of Billings Township. Notable displays include a collection of wedding gowns spanning generations, shipwreck artifacts, shipping memorabilia, military exhibits and archives of the famous Dodge family tragedy.

The adjacent Post Office Museum is a log cabin that was the former 1890 Spring Bay post office and general store. It houses pioneering tools, appliances and telephones.

Kagawong's beach, marina and park adjoin the site with plenty of free parking for visitors. An outdoor Farmers’ Market serves island products on Wednesdays 11 a.m.– 4 p.m., July to August.
