  • Barber Mill The Barber Mill was built in 1823 near present day Georgetown, Ontario. In 1854 it was purchased by the Barber brothers who converted it from a woolen mill to produce rag paper. The property has been deserted for some years, with plans for development seemingly on hold. I have seen images of the inside which are very interesting but would not now be possible without trespassing.
