  Gooderham & Worts Millstone

Favorite thing: In front of the Sandra Ainsley Gallery (the most fabulous glass art gallery I have ever seen) in the Distillery District stands this millstone. The plaque reads:

"This millstone brought from England on the schooner 'Kingston' to the Town of York 1832 was used for grinding grain in the historic windmill of Gooderham & Worts. The windmill stood 52 feet southwest by south of this point. It was the eastern limit of the famous 'Old Windmill Line' on which the original plan of the City of Toronto was based."

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
