O’Hara Mill Homestead and Conservation Area – Madoc, Ontario, Canada [ONTARIO TRAVEL SERIES]


This O’Hara Homestead is definitely a local treasure in Madoc, Ontario.

The moment the wonderful people from Madoc Chamber of Commerce brought us here, we both said, “OMG! This is a hidden gem! How on earth we don’t know about this place????”.

It’s picturesque to see the river, the forest on one side,  and then you see this beautiful bridge with a roof on top of it on another side. As you peek on the other side of the bridge, you will see the water flowing downstream with the historic mill building and the water wheel.

This is a perfect spot for taking wedding photos, or going on a family picnic or romantic couple walks or kids roaming to learn more about the history and the legacy about the O’Hara family. On special days of the year, they have special occasions that open up for people to experience special events such as the Old Fashioned Christmas in December.

MoVernie FUN FACT: Did you know…that this O’Hara Mill Homestead and Conservation Area is run by a non-profit organization with the help of volunteers? Although it’s FREE to roam around the nature and other cool spaces, they accept your donations. Any of your kind contributions will be funnel back to continue to run and maintain this special place.

We highly recommend this place for everyone. It’s a MUST VISIT and a reason for you to make a detour when you are driving towards Ottawa or Toronto.

I have seen a number of places online showing wooden bridge with a roof. This is the 1st one I visited in person and it’s within driving distance to explore a wooden bridge with a roof! Yay!

This bridge is so beautifully constructed by the volunteers of Madoc, Ontario.

A super photogenic place to take photos!
