Canadian Friends of John Muir

On the left bank of the Bighead River just 4 km upstream from the town of Meaford are the remains of Trout Hollow Mill. Now overgrown with cedars and one hundred and thirty years of humus accumulation, it is barely visible. Yet, to the trained eye, the walls of the mill, the tailrace, and the earthen dam are evident. The location of John Muir’s workplace in Meaford (1864-1866) has been found.
