in 1829, Cuthbert Grant built a flour mill on the bank of Sturgeon Creek in Winnipeg.
A replica was built several years ago at the same location, which is a beautiful spot. I could see myself walking Chester in this area and imagine there should be plenty of wildlife here. I did not see much in the short time I wandered by taking a look, but I managed to get a couple of pictures.
The website I found on it says it is open daily from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, but I was there earlier so did not see the mill working at all. You can check out the website here.
The mill is mostly hidden behind the trees, but I think you get a better view of the mill itself from the bridge on Portage Avenue.
I’d be comfortable sitting right here for awhile. 🙂
Sturgeon Creek flows into the Assiniboine River, which then flows into the Red River later on at the Forks.
