Morningstar Mill is a small, rural industrial heritage site owned by the City of St. Catharines and operated in partnership with the Friends of Morningstar Mill. It features a working grist mill built in 1872, a turbine shed, a sawmill, a blacksmith and carpentry shop and the historic home of the Morningstar family. The Mill provides a rare glimpse back in time to when moving water was used to mechanically grind grain into flour.

The Mill is open for tours...

Milling dates...

On August 23, 2014, beginning at about 10:30 am, we will be milling a hard white winter wheat called 'White Bear'. It was grown in Ontario and has a protein content of 12.5%. It is an excellent flour for bread-making.

Our last milling dates for the year are October 18 and October 19, 2014.

We still have Western wheat flour and Ontario-grown hard red spring wheat flour - the variety is called 'Wilkin' - available while supplies last.

2lb bags of flour are available for a suggested donation of $3.
