sawmill at morningstar

VC1257

many moons ago i saw a photo of this red structure (representing a sawmill) in a tourist magazine for the niagara region in southern ontario. i wanted a shot (no pun intended) at photographing it – so after consulting a tourist office, i nailed it down to this site in st. catharines called morningstar mill. i have been visiting this area for the last 10+ years or so, but never really captured it adequately…

anyway, fast forward to the summer of 2015 and my family and i decided to settle in st. catharines after looking around at smaller communities outside the gtaĀ (greater toronto area). lo and behold, this site is a mere 10 minute drive away from my home – accessible anytime! šŸ˜‰

waterwheel in decay

Waterwheel In Decay

the arnos vale waterwheel dates back to 1857 – it powered a mill at the sugar factory on the arnos vale estate in tobago. remnants of the structures are still on the site mostly covered by rainforest vegetation.Ā in recent times, the site was converted to a nature park including a museum, restaurant, gift shop and small theatre. sadly, it is now closed and essentially abandoned. apparently the arnos vale estate that also includes a beach resort is up for sale for a rumoured us$25,000,000.
