Riverside Park

Donna Mcfarlane– When they discontinued parking in the park. Access to the area where folk used to picnic was cut off. Julie Sadler, your grandmother, The Arcands, Cuffaris and my family used to picnic once a year there but when they could not drive close to picnic tables it was discontinued. Cuffaris and ARcands were from Ottawa and loved our park

Barb Fergusson— Definitely the falls. Actually the towns its self. All the little shops you can spend hours browsing in. Warm welcoming people.

Karen Hirst The Woolen Mills were in abundance and connected to our source of power—The Mighty Mississippi. Without this symbiotic relationship of our origin —well who knows. The story of the woolen mills leads to the history of its people both famous and the extraordinarily ordinary. The river—from the largest to the tiniest trickles found throughout all cascade over tiers of rocks into the restful flow of the river connecting the communities of Mississippi Mills.
