A bit of our history
1900 a sawmill was built on the site of the present day Old Mill
at Islandview Resort. The sawmill changed hands many times and burned
down twice. It was best known as The Johnston Mill and was in operation
until the 1940s. Where you see the present day beach area is where
in the early days steamers, which ran the lakes during the summer
season, were pulled up on wooden ways for winter storage and repairs.
In 1958 these steamers were stripped of all their hardware and burned
on this same beach. To this day, we still find remaining pieces
of these boats.
staff of The Old Mill Restaurant at Islandview Resort hope you will
enjoy your time spent here in the Kawarthas.
