Bishop’s Mills, Ontario
Welcome to Bishop’s Mills, Ontario – an historic village in the municipality of North Grenville, located just 65 km south of Ottawa, the Nation’s Capital.
The Village had its origins around 1840 when two brothers, Chauncey and Ira Bishop, chose this location to build a sawmill and grist mill on the Middle Branch of the Rideau River. In the 19th century, the village boasted two general stores, post office, school, churches, blacksmiths, tinsmith and its own doctor.
Today, residents of this picturesque rural hamlet demonstrate their pride in their heritage by actively participating in the community’s two churches, community hall, Women’s Institute and Community Association.
