ALMONTE (MISSISSIPPI MILLS)
Nestled on the Mississippi River, the Town of Mississippi Mills is comprised of Almonte, Pakenham and Ramsay. Considered an exceptional combination of rural and urban living, the communities are recognized for balancing natural beauty with managed economic growth.
Almonte, known for its sparkling waterfalls, rich heritage, art studios, festivals and tree-lined streets, is a highly desirable location to call home. A mere minutes from Ottawa West communities including Carp, Stittsville and Kanata, Almonte offers an easy commute to all areas in the City of Ottawa.
Following the waterway North, you will discover Ramsay Township. Renowned for its fall splendor, Ramsay Township features numerous maple sugar bushes. It is also home to countless recreational activities including mountain biking, boating, hiking, fishing and hunting. Historical buffs will appreciate the Ontario Historical Plaques which include the Auld Kirk (1836), Dr. James Naismith (1861-1939), Robert Tait McKenzie, and The Mill of Kintail Conservation Area.
Should you follow the river further North, you will arrive in Pakenham. Home to North America’s only five arch stone bridge, the Five-Span Stone Bridge, and St. Peter Celestine Church, it is no wonder Pakenham is home to two of the Seven Wonders of Lanark County. Skiers, snowboarders, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers will delight in having Mount Pakenham at their doorstep.
