As of 1930, The Mill of Kintail became the peaceful summer home of Almonte born Dr. Robert Tait McKenzie and his wife Ethel.
He was internationally recognized for his work as a physician, sculptor, teacher and writer.
According to museum records, Group of Seven artist A. Y. Jackson also visited the Mill of Kintail to paint.
It will be an experience you will benefit from and long remember.
