The Balmoral Grist Mill Museum is a restored 1874 water powered grist mill located in Balmoral Mills, Nova Scotia. The site includes a 1 km walking trail along the ravine of Balmoral Brook. The mill is part of the Nova Scotia Museum system. Alexander MacKay owned this water-powered grist mill in the 1880s. It could be used to grind wheat, oats, barley, rye, and buckwheat into flour and meal. The Scottish oat-drying kiln is unique. [1]
