The school closed a year before I moved into the area, but it was a 2 room school, thus the 2nd. floor was a class room. It is also claimed to be haunted, but I didn't bother mentioning that.
On the right side of the screen, it says the photo was taken on January 13, 2015 at 8:58 a.m. at F5.6m 1/100 sec. I do remember it being very cold, and in the morning. Holding the camera in the cold was a problem. Next, batteries die in the cold and the camera has to be kept in my jacket when not in use. That is what it takes to get such photos.

Beautiful photograph and gets a favourite! I just purchased a watercolour painting by Virgina Mitchell of the Old Mill at Delta in Ontario, and this photograph is almost identical. Thanks for the context around this historical site. Warm regards, Deb.
Good stuff, you got the facts right. What connection did you have with the house? I used to play in it in 1951 and 1952 with John Rieve.
This mill was used to grind the phosphate rock with the mineral apatite into a powder to use as a fertilizer in 1880. They produced 1,200 tons a year from the local mines on Opinicon Lake and exported it down the Rideau Canal. A lost part of our history.
