The spring may have been wet, but we have been blessed with some very wonderful days this summer, and this one was one of them. Monday July 4th found us on a historic site for both the US and Canada. This replica of a 19th century grist mill is located across the street from the Duff Baby House.

The Duff Baby house is listed on Canada’s Historic Places web site. They say:

“As a colonel of the militia during the War of 1812, Baby was one of 600 soldiers captured by American troops. The house survived attack, occupation, and looting by the Americans, but required numerous repairs following the war’s end. ”

What a place to be on July 4th! A place steeped in historic events between the US and Canada.
