Watson's Mill is located in the town of Manotick, a historic and picturesque village situated on the banks of the Rideau River 20 km south of Ottawa. Watson's Mill, situated in historic Dickinson Square, is older than Canada itself. The Mill was built by Moss Kent Dickinson and his partner, Joseph Currier, in 1860. Dickinson named the village Manotick, an Ojibwa Indian word meaning "Island in the river". The Mill was constructed from limestone quarried from the riverbank of the western channel of the Rideau River. Many architectural journals describe the Mill as one of the best examples of 19th century grist mill architecture in Canada.
