Chaffey's Mills

After Benjamin and Samuel Chaffey established an extensive milling complex along the Rideau River in the 1820s, a small settlement known as Chaffey's Mills flourished briefly, until construction of the Rideau Canal flooded the mill site. Shipping, and later tourism, helped to maintain the small community.
