Past Meets Present at this Gallery Nestled in an Historic Feed Mill
Opening as a working feed mill in the 1800’s, connected by rail network to the rest of Canada, The Schomberg Feed Mill was the Main Street supply store servicing farmers in the surrounding countryside. The feed mills original structure is on Main Street in the heart of Schomberg, and still stands on its original footprint.
The Old Schomberg Feed Mill originally operated until the railway to Schomberg was abandoned in 1927. Since then, it has been home to many shops and restaurants, and is now home to The Scruffy Duck Restaurant and The Olde Mill Art Gallery & Shoppe. The Old Mill is bursting with history and possibly more….tales have been told of sightings of a gentleman in a top hat wandering through the building.
