Moulin Fleming


This restored five-story windmill was built for a Scottish merchant in 1816, and a multimedia exhibit inside covers its two centuries of history. It’s a nice diversion if you’re out here visiting the other Lachine sites, and a great photo op.

There are free tours of the mill's exterior at 3pm every Sunday in July and August.
