Dickinson House / Maison Dickinson
Pictured in 1870, Dickinson House was originally built by American born Moss Kent Dickinson for his business and was modelled after Abraham Lincoln's house in Springfield, Illinois. The house ultimately became home to the Dickinson, Spratt and Watson families who owned and managed the Mill for close to 150 years.
