There are / were a few Dixon Mills on PEI - the story goes there was a Dixon family near Belfast, I believe, who operated a mil - when his sons grew up they were encouraged to go to other communities on the Island and start mills. I know there was a Dixon Mill in Kingston and another near Souris.
Above: this is where the water wheel was located.
Mac showed us through the mill telling us about the equipment and this Bran Duster that his father bought on a trip to Boston.
The old mill is still there - I don't have current photos - I will try this summer. Mac's son built a house behind the mill in the 1990's. In the late 1980's there were a couple of local entrepreneurs who wanted to turn it into a museum but it didn't happen! There are few of these old mills left on the Island.
Above: later that summer I took this photo - a site to behold as the wide open fields gather in the vale at the old mill.
