The Grist Mill was a stone building (about 125 feet long and 50 feet wide, 4 stories high), built between 1851 and 1855 by Daniel McLachlin, at the west end of the Memorial Bridge in Arnprior (corner of Daniel and Madawaska streets). The grist mill was the centre of industrial birth in Arnprior after the failure in 1839 of the Buchanan Brothers enterprises on the same river site. (The McLachlin sawmill was located across the river at the other end of a small dam). In 1889, David Craig used the mill to manufacture flour. In 1895, the McLachlins used it as a boarding house and a training headquarters for boy scouts and cubs; Dr. Newell Beattie was the next
owner; its last owner, William Baird, used the building as a restaurant and coin wash. On July 30, 1975, Ontario Hydro bought the mill; on September 24, 1975, the mill burned down.

Subseries: Huyck--Kenwood Mills. -- 1923-1924; 1968; 1997. --6.5 cm of textual records and 24 photographs.;
The Kenwood Mills of Arnprior (famous for Kenwood blankets) began in 1918 when the US company F.C. Huyck & Sons took over a factory building of Griffith & McNaughton on William Street in Arnprior. Griffith & McNaughton, founded in 1915 had originally made shirts and then, during World War I, switched to socks and blankets. Huyck named the Arnprior factory “Kenwood Mills” after a village near Albany, New York where the American owners had operated their mill for years. In 1962, the Kenwood operation was amalgamated with another Canadian Huyck subsidiary to become Huyck Canada Ltd. In the 1960s/70s, Kenwood in Arnprior switched to the production of paper machine clothing ( large continuous felts used by paper manufacturers). For a time, Kenwood was the largest employer in town, with 300 employees. In 1980, a huge British conglomerate, BTR Paper Groups, bought the entire Huyck Corporation with all its divisions, including Arnprior.

In 1872 or 1873, John Gillies (1811-1888) bought the Braeside sawmill (which came to be known as the Gillies Bros., Ltd.) from the Reverend Henry Usborne (an absentee English proprietor who built the mill in 1869 on the completion of the Canada Central Railway to Sand Point, 2 miles west of Braeside). With the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885, the Gillies Bros., Ltd. focused its efforts on developing Canadian markets for sawn lumber as well as export markets to the United States, the United Kingdom, and the West Indies. On July 4, 1910, a fire destroyed the west lumber yard containing 29 million board feet of lumber at Braeside; the sawmill was not damaged. But, in 1919, there was another fire and the sawmill was destroyed. However, by 1920-1921, a new electrically driven brick and concrete mill was erected. At that time, it was the first fireproof mill of its kind in Canada. In 1953, the company had upwards of 1,800 square miles of timber limits on the Coulonge, Black, and Schyan (or Schwyan?) Rivers in Quebec and the Petawawa, Madawaska, Matabitchouan and Sturgeon Rivers in Ontario, all under lease from the Ontario and Quebec governments. In November 1963, the Gillies sold its Braeside mill to Consolidated Bathurst. Over the years, the following were the presidents: James Gillies (1842-1909), John Gillies (1909-1914), David Gillies (1914-1926), John S. Gillies (1926-1938), David A. Gillies (1938-1959) and Chairman of the Board (1959-1961), John A. Gillies Jr. who was a Major O. C. 51st Battalion 1st Anti tank Regiment R.C.A in 1939 (1961-1962), Arnold G. Muirhead (1962-1968), W.W. Bud Gillespie and then R.A. Nugent. The mill site is now owned by Tembec.

History / Biography
A. The donor company Stewart Famco Ltd., is a private, Ontario land-holding company (924099 Ontario Inc.) incorporated on December 31, 1990, and owned by the five children of Duncan Edward Stewart and Elizabeth (Bessie) Wallace Stewart nee McLaren. The company’s purpose is to administer certain tracts of land transferred to the company by their father for the joint benefit of the five owners. The owners, who hold equal shares, are: Elizabeth Stewart-Hessel of Waba, President; Judy Cerigo of Waba; David Stewart of Renfrew; Neil Stewart of White Lake; Madeline Stewart of Pakenham. B. The creators of the fonds Stewart Brothers, a family partnership operated in the hamlet of Waba, Township of McNab (now the Township of McNab/Braeside) in Renfrew County, Ontario, from the 1840s or 1850s to 1968. The sawmill part of the business continued to operate in Waba under other ownership until 1981. Thus, there were continuous sawmill operations in Waba for about 130-140 years. The first record of the industrial enterprises that became Waba Mills dates from 1848, when Alexander Stewart of Beckwith Township paid the Crown $40 for 200 acres on Lot 2, Concessions 4 and 5, McNab Township. This land was on both sides of Waba Creek (then called Waba Brook or Waba River) and included the use of substantial waterfalls. It is uncertain whether Alexander erected a sawmill himself or whether he only purchased the land for development by his sons. Donald Stewart was 19 in 1848, while his brothers Robert and John were only 15 and 7, respectively. No records have been found so far which indicate the exact date when the first Stewart sawmill was built in Waba. It is recorded, however, that the Stewarts built the dam across Waba Creek in 1852. The sawmill was located on the west side of Waba Creek used the power of the falls, which were about 4 meters high, to propel the turbines. In the beginning an upright saw was used, but by about 1880, the operation was changed to circular saws. According to the Biographical Directory of Lanark County Subscribers, John Stewart moved to Renfrew County in 1855. In 1859, a barley and grist mill was built, which not only produced pot barley, but was also grinding the farmers’ own barley and oats as feed. An account of barley bought and sold is contained in the 1859-83 General Store Ledger. When the railway reached Pakenham in 1865, the sawmill's lumber products were taken there, mostly in the winter by sleigh, then shipped by train to Brockville for trans-shipment to Canadian and U.S. markets. Stewart Brothers of Waba won the contract to build School Section 11 (Waba). They started construction in December 1873 and finished in June 1874 at a cost of $650. In 1883, Robert Stewart was farming on Lot 2, Concession 4, while Donald Stewart and his youngest brother John were operating the sawmill and other enterprises. Donald died of pneumonia that year, so John Stewart took the main responsibility as principal partner in the business. A planing mill was built in 1885 and a shingle mill in 1895. It produced cedar shingles and shakes and operated until 1938 when asphalt products were rapidly replacing wooden shingles. The hamlet of Waba owes its existence to these early mill operations. Virtually everyone in and near Waba was employed at the mills, at least on a part-time basis. Even after the huge McLachlin mills in Arnprior and the Gillies mills in Braeside swung into full operation, business in Waba continued to grow. In addition to lumber for construction purposes (mostly white pine), the Stewart Mills became known for several specialty wood products such as cloth boards for the textile industry, cheese boxes, laths, etc. However, after gypsum board replaced the old lath and plaster method of finishing inside walls and ceilings, laths were no longer in demand. A disastrous fire on December 6, 1956 destroyed the 100-year-old original wooden buildings. Although he had no insurance, Duncan built a new, more modern mill in the following spring. In December 1968, the Stewart family sold the business to Edwin Kennedy, an American entrepreneur who also owned a sawmill in Calabogie. After another fire in 1970, Kennedy obtained a large government grant and erected new, fireproof steel and concrete buildings. After operating that mill for 10 years, Kennedy sold the business to another firm. When that company went bankrupt in 1981, sawmill operations and all industrial endeavors in Waba came to an end. The machinery, equipment and logs were sold by auction. Duncan Stewart bought the empty buildings and the land back from the Trustee. He sold the main mill buildings to a company that dismantled and moved them to Tillsonburg, Ont., where they were set up again as a sawmill and moved toTillsonburg, Ontario. He sold the former mill office as a home. The remaining small buildings and the site are still owned by members of the Stewart family. The Stewart Brothers also owned and operated a general store in Waba, just west of the sawmill. Between 1889 and 1947 the Waba Post Office was in the store as well. John Stewart, Alexander N. Stewart, Duncan G. Stewart and Duncan G. Stewart all served as postmasters. The general store was closed and the building sold in 1968. C. Administrative relationships In addition to the post office, which, of course was operated for the Dominion of Canada and “On His/Her Majesty’s Service”, the Stewart Brothers also had a close business relationship with local farmers who had formed a cheese factory cooperative. This factory was located on Stewart land on the east bank of Waba Creek. While the cooperative was responsible for the production under cheesemaker James Poole, Stewart Brothers looked after the sales and marketing of the products. This was a symbiotic relationship. Starting in 1899, Stewart Brothers also manufactured cheese boxes made of elm veneer. In 1900, the boxes sold for 12 cents a piece; they were shipped to cheese factories all over North America. Waba cheese on the other hand sold for 10 cents a pound wholesale that year, mostly to wholesalers in Ottawa and Montreal. A major customer was the firm of Edward McGillivray in Ottawa. Biographical Sketches The following biographical sketches include the patriarch, founders and operators of Stewart Brothers enterprises in Waba from 1848 - 1968. Additional biographical sketches of the extended Stewart family can be found in the ‘Family Gallery Photographs’ sub-series. Three John Stewarts’ have been identified in this fonds by their place of birth. John Stewart (Beckwith) is profiled below while John Stewart (Horton) and John Stewart (Scotland) appear in the ‘Family Gallery Photographs’ sub-series. Alexander Stewart was born in the tiny clachan of Croftcarnach near the hamlet of Borenich on Loch Tummel, Perthshire, Scotland, in 1792. In 1818, he immigrated to Canada together with his brother John Stewart. While John settled at Robertson’s Corners, about 2 km from Waba, Alexander farmed at Black’s Corners in Beckwith Township, where he also became a general-store merchant (known as “Merchant Stewart” or “Merchant Sandy”). In 1821 he married Elizabeth nee Douglass. They had four sons and one daughter. Although it is not known whether Alexander operated a sawmill in Waba or only prepared the site for his sons, he can be regarded as the founder of the Waba Mills enterprises, since he purchased the land in 1848. He died at his farm home in Black’s Corners on Sep. 15, 1892, just short of his 100th birthday. Donald Stewart was born in Beckwith Township on August 8, 1829, the son of Alexander Stewart and Elizabeth nee Douglass. He was educated in Carleton Place and then moved to Waba, where he became the principal partner of Stewart Brothers. In addition to his business interests, he was active in politics and public affairs. For example, as a local councillor in 1860, he introduced a motion for starting a public library. He supplied and donated most of the building material when the Presbyterian Church in White Lake was built in 1881. In 1862 and again from 1869 to 1875, he served a Reeve of McNab Township, and in 1875 as Warden of Renfrew County. In the 1871 Ontario election, he was defeated as the Reform Party candidate in his riding. Donald remained a bachelor. When his frame home on Waba Creek was destroyed by fire in 1878, he replaced it with a substantial stone house in the following year. He also operated the Waba General Store across the street from his home. He died of pneumonia on April 29, 1883. Robert Stewart was born on April 22, 1833 in Beckwith Township, the son of Alexander Stewart and Elizabeth nee Douglass. He farmed in Waba on Lot 2, Concession 4. When his older brother Donald died in 1883, Robert inherited the large stone house in Waba. For a short time, he also co-owned the mill and store with his brother John. Robert married Margaret [or Elizabeth?] Rae. They had 2 daughters. John Stewart (Beckwith) was born in Beckwith Township on December 21, 1841, the youngest son of Alexander Stewart and Elizabeth nee Douglass. He became the youngest partner of the Stewart Brothers enterprises in Waba. He married Margaret Robertson of Robertson's Corners. They had seven children, including Duncan Gordon Stewart. He built a substantial white frame house above Waba Creek. John served two terms as Reeve of McNab Township (1879-89 and 1906-13). During the latter period, he also served as Warden of Renfrew County. John Stewart died in Waba on August 27, 1925. Alexander Newton Stewart, born in Waba on Aug. 26, 1873, son of John Stewart and Margaret nee Robertson. He operated Stewart Brothers in partnership with his brother Duncan Gordon, handling mostly the accounting and business end. He remained unmarried and lived in the house built by his father John. He died in Waba on September 3, 1934, leaving the house to his nephew, Duncan Edward Stewart. Duncan Gordon Stewart was born in Waba on June 27, 1875, the second son of John Stewart and Margaret nee Robertson. He married Ethel Margaret nee Stewart (no relation) on May 5, 1909. They had 2 children: Duncan Edward Stewart and Margaret Robertson Stewart (one other child died in infancy). When his father John died in 1925, Duncan and his brother Alexander (Andy) took over the firm. Duncan died in Waba on October 3, 1954 in his 80th year. While Duncan was mainly responsible for the technical operations, Alexander handled the business side. Duncan Stewart died in Waba on October 3, 1954. Duncan Edward Stewart was born in Waba on May 10, 1910, the only son of Duncan G. Stewart and Ethel nee Stewart. He was educated at Renfrew Collegiate and Queen’s University, where he graduated with a degree in electrical engineering in 1934. When his uncle Alexander, who was unmarried, died in 1934, Duncan was asked to enter the business as a partner with his father and his aunt Margaret (who remained a silent partner). In 1936, he married Elizabeth [Bessie] Wallace nee McLaren of Renfrew. They had five children. After his father's death in 1954, Duncan managed the firm alone. In his retirement, Duncan Stewart served for many years as trustee for the Renfrew County School Board. He died in Waba, of lung cancer, on July 31, 1996.
Acquisition Source
When the Stewart Brothers enterprises were sold in 1968, Duncan E. Stewart kept most of the business papers in his residence in Waba. Some were stored in his home office, others in an unheated loft above the garage. Before Duncan E. Stewart died, he had allowed his son-in-law Peter Hessel to transfer some of the documents for safekeeping to Peter Hessel’s office in Waba. While Peter Hessel had urged Duncan to donate all the documents to the Arnprior and District Archives, he decided to leave that decision to his family. Upon Duncan’s death in 1996, the papers became the property of his widow, Elizabeth (Bessie) Stewart nee McLaren. She and her 5 children agreed when Peter Hessel suggested that the family company donate the papers to the Archives. In 1998, Peter Hessel transferred part of total collection of remaining documents to his office. A large number of papers were not taken because they were either too badly deteriorated or not of lasting value. When the Archives Board of Management agreed to accept the papers, he transferred them to the Archives in January 1999.
Scope and Content
The Stewart Famco fonds consists of business records relating to the operations and the history of the Stewart Brothers enterprises as well as Stewart family private papers which contain genealogical research files, journals and photographs. Files containing material related to land holdings, surveying and correspondence are also contained in this fonds.
Contained in the Correspondence series are seven letter books kept by Donald and John Stewart between 1870 and 1923. They are a rich source of information pertaining to business, township, county, provincial and private affairs. It is in these letter books that we find responses to various issues presented to Donald Stewart as reeve of the township between 1869 and 1875. In April 1891, John Stewart wrote of his decision to build a cheese factory in Waba. Various Cheese factory account books are contained in the Miscellaneous Accounting Records sub-series.
The types of photographs contained in this fonds are typical examples of photographic technique and style as it had penetrated into small town Ontario in the last quarter of the 19th century. Some remarkably beautiful portraits by the Handford studios of Renfrew stand out from the rest. The collection of photographs contained in the Stewart Family series is exceptional because many of the people are identified. The photographs and journals of family members help to put the textual files into human context.
Prior to deposit in the Arnprior & District Archives, the fonds was gathered together by Peter Hessel, Duncan Edward Stewart’s son-in-law. He provided the administrative history, biographical notes and custodial history for this finding aid. He had access to this material while writing his book, McNab – The Township. It should be consulted for more information about the settlement, development and resources of the area in which the Stewart Brothers operated their business enterprises and raised their family.

History / Biography
The Arnprior Women’s Institute is a branch within Renfrew South District. Their first meeting was in the Council Chambers on January 8, 1932; 12 members were present and paid a fee of 25 cents. Over the years Arnprior Women's Institute has supported such causes as St. John Ambulance, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Victorian Order of Nurses, Arnprior Fair, Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital, Arnprior’s Grove, refugees, and donations to fire victims. The branch amalgamated in April 2002 with Stewartville to become the Arnprior-Stewartville Branch. That branch then disbanded in 2008, with remaining members joining the White Lake Branch.

File
Scope and Content
File contains information pertaining to the land in McNab Township that was granted by the Crown to Archibald Laird of McNab personally. All the material consists of photocopies of documents in the National Archives under No. R.G. 1, E3, Volume 53.
1. Copy of letter by R.B. (The Hon. Robert Baldwin) Sullivan to Archibald McNab, dated Toronto, Sep. 27, 1839. The Executive Council cannot find justifiable vouchers, etc. for McNab’s claim. A payment of £4000 is recommended in lieu of all rights. 1. McNab is to assign his rights to the Crown, 2. £4000 to be paid to McNab, 3. McNab to sell his own land to the settlers at market value (without considering any improvements made), 4. the payment of £4000 is to come from said sale of lands; 5. Money already paid to McNab to the settlers is to be deducted.
2. Copy of letter over McNab’s signature to Executive Council, dated Toronto, July 30, 1839. Misunderstanding between him and the Council respecting the terms: McNab surrendering his claim to a grant of 5000 acres of land under certain conditions. McNab claims that Council is misinformed about the area of land settled in the township and that not 6500 acres but nearly 10,000 acres are now settled by a total of 165 settlers (families). He says that he has “located” about 15,000 acres in total. He wants payment of the full amount of his “admitted outlays” with interest.
3. Copy of short letter signed J.B. Harrison (Government House) to ?, dated July 24, 1839. Last paragraph of a letter to McNab “had better be omitted”.
4. Copy of letter over McNab’s signature dated July 25, 1839 (to Council?), entitled” Remarks by The McNab upon the Report of the Executive Council in the settlement of the Township of McNab, of date 23rd July 1839”. McNab was in Toronto to address the Council in the matter of his claim.
5. Copy of the Report of July 23, 1839 referred to above.
6. Copy of letter by the Executive Council to McNab, dated July 27, 1839, signed Sullivan.
7. Copy of note by McNab (all in his own hand) to R.A. Tucker, dated Toronto, July 4, 1839.
8. Copy of letter by Hagerman to Macauley (secretary of Lieutenant Governor), dated Toronto, July 15, 1839. Hagerman cautions about McNab’s power to evict 100 or more families. This might cause unrest among the new Loyal Scotch in the eastern part of the country — “most injurious”. “The (original) agreement made with McNab was most injudicious”. “The faith of the Crown ... must be maintained”. Recommended: grant McNab compensation and regain control of the township.
9. Copy of letter by McNab to Macauley, dated Toronto, Feb. 16, 1838, after Council’s and Lt. Gov.’s decision was made. Re monetary compensation by the government for expenses on behalf of the settlers. McNab values land (5000 acres) and buildings at £5000, expenses at £4000 (total: £9000).
10. Copy of letter by Archdeacon John Strachan to Robert Baldwin Sullivan, dated Toronto, Feb. 6, 1839 re McNab, recommending that McNab be given the right to do more or less as he pleases.
11. Copy of letter by Macauley (Lt. Gov.’s secretary) to Attorney General Hagerman asking for an opinion on Council’s recommendations re McNab.
12. Copy of letter (recommendations) by Attorney General C.W.A. Hagerman re McNab’s patent, etc. Dated Toronto, February 14, 1839. The Lt. Gov. to make the decision. McNab’s right to expel 50 or 100 families is questionable. Caution is urged. Recommends to send a confidential agent to the township to make a report re the causes of differences between McNab and the settlers. “Was it ever the Crown’s intention to place so much power in the hands of McNab?” In the meantime, the eviction of 12 settlers was approved.
13. Att. Gen’s office, dated Feb. 14, 1939, very similar to 12.
14. Copy of Recommendations by Archdeacon John Strachan, dated Feb. 5, 1835. “It is respectfully recommended that the services rendered by ... McNab in settling the township, ... with the exception of the Crown and Clergy reserves ...”
15. Copy of letter by Sullivan to Lt. Governor Sir George Arthur, dated Toronto, Feb. 8, 1839, including Executive Council minutes and recommendations re McNab - to grant patent in trust, referring to “trust deed for the lands under his superintendence”. Council regrets “exceeding;y” the original “stipulation entered into by the Government with the McNab, which made the grants to the locatees subject to the performance of agreements between himself and the settlers”. “McNab’s claim to 5000 acres of land “seems to have been voluntarily given up in consideration of ... certain prime timber in the township”. Council “did not notice this circumstance when the petition for a location upon lots occupied by the settlers was last before them — this accounts for locations of settlers upon lands settled by the McNab — these lands must therefore be considered, as seems to have been the design of the parties when the locations were made, to be precisely under the same circumstances as other lands”. Recommended: that a patent be issued to the Laird in trust so that he can convey lots to the settlers subject to remuneration for the Laird’s expenses in settling them.
16. Copy of letter over McNab’s signature to the Lieutenant Governor, dated Toronto, Feb. 5, 1839. “Upon the 5th of November 1823 he [i.e. the McNab] had the honour of obtaining the Grant of settling a township of land in the Province upon certain terms and conditions (a copy of which is herewith produced), a certain portion of which (8000) was specifically reserved for himself.”
“That upon the 7th day of April 1827, he received the commands of Government to fulfill and report upon all the conditions in the said Grant (which order and original copy of his answer is herewith also produced), when he then selected the Lots as reserved for himself — a copy of the schedule of which is in the hands of the Deputy Surveyor General. It has been already often stated that there was but a small portion of the Township fit for settling (not much above 7000 acres), the object of his settlement would therefore have been defeated wholly, had he reserved his own lands from settlement, he therefore gave the choice of his own lands to the settlers upon the same terms that he settled the rest upon.
“That he has strictly fulfilled all the conditions of his arrangement with Government in every respect, and having laid out considerable sums of money in improving his property — in erecting two separate establishments, with saw & grist mills, for the benefit of the Township and that portion of the County, he humbly requests that Your Excellency in Council may be pleaded to order a Patent Deed to issue to him of his own said lands according to the list which (is with the Deputy Surveyor General) . . .”
16. Copy of letter from Secretary Mudge to the Presiding (Executive) Counsellor, dated July 20, 1830.
17. Copies of several other documents (many pages) pertaining to the same matter (1830s and 1840s).
18. Handwritten transcript (by Kirstin Jeffrey, Arnprior, 1987) of a document issued on December 5, 1862 by the Registry Office of Renfrew County, pertaining to the conveyance of land (Lot 5, Concession C) in the Township of McNab first by the Crown to Archibald McNab (Feb. 28, 1828), then by Indenture of Bargain and Sale from James Middleton and Alfred Middleton to Daniel McLachlin, on January 28, 1852, then by Indenture of Mortgage from Daniel McLachlin to Alexander Simpson and (another property) to Nathaniel Burwash (in 1855). Also mentioned: dower rights of McNab’s widow (Margaret McNab) claimed in 1861/62. See also below.
19. Brown envelope containing copies of newspaper clippings of articles written by Harry Walker regarding “dower rights” claimed by McNab’s widow. Also containing photocopy of a handwritten copy of an “Indenture between Margaret McNab and Daniel McLachlin re dower’s rights claimed, dated Nov. 17th, 1862. This handwritten note was copied in 1987 when it was found by Peter Hessel and Kirstin Jeffrey “upstairs in the Arnprior Museum’s ‘old kitchen’, next to a filing cabinet (in clear plastic files) with reference number recorded (by PH) as 70.32.18.” The “original” handwritten copy is probably contained in the “Museum Collection”.
20. Photocopies of three pages (96, 98, 776) of unknown origin apparently in Archibald McNab’s handwriting. The first two pages are entitled “Rental of the Township of McNab 1839”.

The names of 50 settlers on page 778 may be signatures, but more likely entries by the same person (the Laird himself?). These three pages were donated by Arnold McIntyre of Arnprior in August 2000.

History / Biography
The Arnprior and District Museum was opened in 1967 as the Town of Arnprior’s official Centennial project. The Museum occupies a unique red stone landmark, built in 1896 as the Post Office. In 1962, Mr. and Mrs. David A. Gillies purchased and donated the building to the town; the building was renamed the David A. Gillies Building; in 1977, the municipality designated the building as a heritage site (under the 1974 Ontario Heritage Act). The Museum’s mandate was to collect artifacts, maps, books, and documents that record the history of Arnprior and the area, from the fur-trading days when Indians had encampments during the Champlain era through until 1825 when the Scottish Laird of McNab (Archibald McNab) brought 80 settlers to the area from Scotland to the lumbering era dominated by the McLachlin and Gillies families (about 1860’s to 1940’s).

The large sawmills which he built greatly stimulated the community’s growth. In 1853, the family began construction of its large stone home later known as The Hill (less commonly known too as the Raithmuir). Daniel McLachlin was born in Rigaud Township, Lower Canada; by 1837, he had built a sawmill and grist mill at Bytown (Ottawa). In the legislature of the province of Canada, McLachlin represented Bytown from 1851-1854 and Renfrew County from 1861 to 1863. Upon Arnprior’s incorporation in 1862, he was elected to the first village council under Reeve Erie Harrington, and he represented South Renfrew in the first Dominion Parliament from 1867-1869. Over a period covering several generations (1851-1929), the family built a lumbering empire in the area. The lumbering firm was dissolved in the late 1930’s.

The Grist Mill was a stone building (about 125 feet long and 50 feet wide, 4 stories high), built between 1851 and 1855 by Daniel McLachlin, at the west end of the Memorial Bridge in Arnprior (corner of Daniel and Madawaska streets). The grist mill was the centre of industrial birth in Arnprior after the failure in 1839 of the Buchanan Brothers enterprises on the same river site. (The McLachlin sawmill was located across the river at the other end of a small dam). In 1889, David Craig used the mill to manufacture flour. In 1895, the McLachlins used it as a boarding house and a training headquarters for boy scouts and cubs; Dr. Newell Beattie was the next
owner; its last owner, William Baird, used the building as a restaurant and coin wash. On July 30, 1975, Ontario Hydro bought the mill; on September 24, 1975, the mill burned down.

Series: Huyck--Kenwood Mills. -- 1923-1924; 1968; 1997. --6.5 cm of textual records and 24 photographs.
The Kenwood Mills of Arnprior (famous for Kenwood blankets) began in 1918 when the US company F.C. Huyck & Sons took over a factory building of Griffith & McNaughton on William Street in Arnprior. Griffith & McNaughton, founded in 1915 had originally made shirts and then, during World War I, switched to socks and blankets. Huyck named the Arnprior factory “Kenwood Mills” after a village near Albany, New York where the American owners had operated their mill for years. In 1962, the Kenwood operation was amalgamated with another Canadian Huyck subsidiary to become Huyck Canada Ltd. In the 1960s/70s, Kenwood in Arnprior switched to the production of paper machine clothing ( large continuous felts used by paper manufacturers). For a time, Kenwood was the largest employer in town, with 300 employees. In 1980, a huge British conglomerate, BTR Paper Groups, bought the entire Huyck Corporation with all its divisions, including Arnprior. Weavexx was a wholly-owned subsidiary of BTR created in 1992 through a merger of Huyck Canada and Niagara Lockport Industries Canada Ltd. The Arnprior plant was later taken over by Weavexx, which closed its Arnprior operations in 1996.
Series consists of clippings and public relations material about the plant, 10 b&w photos of the American plant in Massachusetts, 14 photos of the water tower, and extensive records on the making of felt.

In 1872 or 1873, John Gillies (1811-1888) bought the Braeside sawmill (which came to be known as the Gillies Bros., Ltd.) from the Reverend Henry Usborne (an absentee English proprietor who built the mill in 1869 on the completion of the Canada Central Railway to Sand Point, 2 miles west of Braeside). With the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885, the Gillies Bros., Ltd. focused its efforts on developing Canadian markets for sawn lumber as well as export markets to the United States, the United Kingdom, and the West Indies. On July 4, 1910, a fire destroyed the west lumber yard containing 29 million board feet of lumber at Braeside; the sawmill was not damaged. But, in 1919, there was another fire and the sawmill was destroyed. However, by 1920-1921, a new electrically driven brick and concrete mill was erected. At that time, it was the first fireproof mill of its kind in Canada. In 1953, the company had upwards of 1,800 square miles of timber limits on the Coulonge, Black, and Schyan (or Schwyan?) Rivers in Quebec and the Petawawa, Madawaska, Matabitchouan and Sturgeon Rivers in Ontario, all under lease from the Ontario and Quebec governments. In November 1963, the Gillies sold its Braeside mill to Consolidated Bathurst. Over the years, the following were the presidents: James Gillies (1842-1909), John Gillies (1909-1914), David Gillies (1914-1926), John S. Gillies (1926-1938), David A.

Series: Lumbering. -- 1957; 1966-1967. -- 1.5 cm of textual records, 6 b&w photos, and 2 negatives.
In the 1800’s, demand for Canadian timber rose sharply, and lumber merchants (such as Philemon Wright, John R. Booth, Daniel McLachlin, James Gillies, E.B. Eddy, Stewart Brothers) were quick to lease timber limits up the Ottawa Valley (some notable river names include Petawawa, Madawaska, Bonnechere, Mississippi, Gatineau and Ottawa rivers). Timber “cruisers” would select timber stands for the cut (which would take place in winter) and also select sites for the “shanties” or camps in which the cutting crews would live. These crews would then take up residence in October and, throughout the winter, fell the trees for hewers to square. The teamsters would then haul the timber to the riverbank to await the spring break-up. In the spring, the “drivers” “ran” the logs down to rafting sites (such as Arnprior) on the Ottawa. The timber was then assembled into “rafts”. These timber rafts were eventually sent to Quebec City, where they were taken apart; the timber was then loaded onto ships and sent overseas. Although lumbering continued into the 20th century, external factors (such as the use of steel and iron) meant lumbering would not witness as colorful an era as in the 1800’s.
Sub-group consists of records on such themes as the following: articles about the log drivers, the first chute at Madawaska, J.R. Booth, squared timber, the tug boat call the Opeongo, Bob Charbonneau’s lumber camp in Gatineau, Tony Deschenes, McLachlin’s No. 4 mill, lumbering operations in bygone days in Arnprior and area, and the historical plaque in Bell Park commemorating timber rafting on the Ottawa River. Photos include Gillies Mills’ administrative office (to be confirmed) taken in 1957, participants at the ceremony for the unveiling of the plaque in 1967, one of the McLachlin mill sites, inside a mill, and a square timber log jam. Negatives are of different types of tools used in lumbering.

The Arnprior Cemetery is the burying ground of all Protestant denominations and fraternal societies, located at the mouth of the Madawaska River. It is also known as the Inch Bhui cemetery and the Yellow Isle after the ancient burying place of the Clan McNab in Perthshire, Scotland. The Arnprior plot was set aside as a burying ground by Chief McNab in the early days of the settlement and it first appears in legal documents as a reservation in a deed dated March 22, 1847 from Archibald McNab to Charles S. Middleton which covered all of McNab’s property in the vicinity of Arnprior. In 1862, a meeting was held at Edey’s Hotel in Arnprior to fence and further improve the grave yard. Eric Harrington was Secretary-Treasurer. From 1878-1889, the grave yard became a favorite pasture for the village cows; in 1889, a new committee was formed with T.W. Kenny as Chairman. Under Kenny’s leadership, the cemetery once again became a beautiful spot. In 1903, M.D. Graham was Secretary-Treasurer. The care of the cemetery was eventually taken over by a Board of Trustees organized under an Ontario Statute.

When records were housed in the Museum, each sub-group was dedicated to a box; these boxes were placed in alphabetical order on the shelf. Also included are some of the index cards used by the Museum curator to keep track of donations; the cards were in triplicate and filed according to 1. donor 2. category or subject 3. accession number. This card filing system was not fully maintained during the transfer. Intellectual access to the records is now gained by consulting the finding aid.
Accruals
Further accruals are expected on an ongoing basis.
