Was out exploring last week and thought I would go and check out the old abandoned Krug Brothers saw mill ruins along the banks of North Saugeen River in Chesley Ontario. Its quit amazing what is still left to see! I have explored many old mill ruins along many river banks and usually for the most part all that is left to see are stone or brick foundations. At the location of the Abandoned Krug Brother Saw mill there are still many gears and shafts and inner workings quit visible. The saw mill was built in 1891 and on the opposite side of the river is also where the Krug Brothers had their original furniture factory, the buildings are long gone but many stone foundations and some rusting abandoned equipment still remain along the river banks. There is an old abandoned bridge that easily allows you to cross the river to explore both sides. The complex was massive and they also had their own kiln on site to dry their own wood. There was tram system in place that criss crossed over the river to keep the operation running smoothly. The complex was closed in 1910 when they moved the operation to a larger more modern building along the rail-way line. This building is also abandoned now.
The location of these saw mill ruins and old Krug Brothers Furniture Factory ruins can be found on our abandoned places in Ontario Map.
