Description & Services
Information The Sutherland Steam Mill Museum is an 1894 saw mill, and is for anyone who loves mechanical and innovative things. Nova Scotian ingenuity created a mill that was once powered by steam, and could turn out four times as much lumber as a water-powered one! For nearly 70 years, Alexander Sutherland and his family produced carriages, sleds, windows, and fancy gingerbread trim, which were shipped on the old railway line beside the mill. Visitors can see many examples of the Sutherlands’ resourcefulness throughout the mill. Rain barrels on the roof provided fire protection, a bathtub was used for soaking shingles and recycled cream separator was converted into a band-saw. See demonstrations of how power was transferred through belts and pulleys, while enjoying hands-on exhibits.
