Our History

The Dickson Mill in Cambridge, Ontario, is a limestone gristmill built in 1844 to replace a wooden structure destroyed by fire. It was powered by a dam created by William Dickson, the founder of Galt, and provided energy for a flourmill, sawmill, and wool factory. The mill survived a major flood in 1974 and remains an architectural landmark along the Grand River. The Ciancone family purchased the mill in 2008 and restored it, turning it into the Cambridge Mill, a riverside restaurant and event venue. The building is constructed of locally quarried rock, which contains an abundance of heart-shaped fossils left by ancient mollusks. The Cambridge Mill is a beautiful and impressive reminder of the history of Galt and the Grand River, preserving its heritage and celebrating its past for visitors to enjoy.
