The McDougall Mill Museum’s picturesque setting in O’Brien Park is located at the second chute of the Bonnechere River and Renfrew’s Swinging Bridge.

The museum holds three packed floors of artifacts, many from Renfrew’s early Industrial days when the town was home to: Renfrew Electric, makers of Canadian Beauty Appliances, Renfrew Refrigerator Company, Renfrew Machinery Acorn stoves, Renfrew Flour Mills, and the Renfrew Creamery.

Though the majority of the museum’s artifacts celebrate local history, we also exhibit items donated by valley natives from travels around Canada and exotic locales abroad.
