Our History

Most of Tyrone was originally owned by the first settler John Gray. He wrote many letters to relatives back in Tyrone County, Ireland including the McClung brothers, John and William. Tyrone Mills, built in 1846 by James McFeeters and John Gray, is a site well known for its flour milling and is one of Canada’s oldest water powered grist mills. The millstone and woodworking machines are driven by connected belts, pulleys and line shafting with a minimum of modern concessions. Little has changed in the mill’s interior over the past 150 years.


Today, a woodworking shop, blacksmith shop and an outdoor wood-fired Quebec oven, made of clay from the property and straw from a local farmer, have been added to enhance the mill.
