Blog Guelph: Sunset on Goldie Mill


Goldie Mill (807), originally uploaded by lio2006.

Mill operations ceased in the 1930's and Goldies operated as a warehouse until 1953 when fire once again destroyed the location.

When the ruins were threatened to be flattened into a parking lot - suddenly a Joni Mitchell song is running through my mind - the Grand River Conservation Authority purchased the ruins in 1976. Several groups worked to stabalized the ruins and have the location designated as a public park.
