historic McLean Mill, Port Alberni

McLean Mill National Historic Site is a steam-operated sawmill on Vancouver Island, officially open to tourists since July 1, 2000. …

The mill originally ran as a family operated saw-milling business from 1926 to 1965.  …

I took a detour off cycling the AV Log Train Trail to visit the mill.

VERY impressed.

More photos.

The huge steam Donkey engines were the highlight for me.

My Mom once took the tourist train to visit the Mill.
