Meadowlily Mill Ruins

Published

on

Was out today doing some Urban Exploring of the Meadow Lily Mill ruins as it was originally known, sometime in the late 1800 it all became one world and was called the Meadowlily Mill. There have been several mills at this location starting in the mid 1850’s. Several devastating caused the old Ontario mill to be rebuilt 3 times. The last fire destroyed the mill in 1901 and it was not rebuilt and abandoned. All that remains today are some stone walls and debris from the old mill. Also present at the site is the mill race and if you examine closely you can see the depression were the mill pond was and some structural remains of the mills dam.

Abandoned Saw Mill Ruins in Chesley Ontario

Published

on

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.
