Mission Statement

The mandate of the Billings Museum Committee for the Old Mill Heritage Centre is to collect, record, research and exhibit historical information, data and items for the preservation and enjoyment of the rich heritage by presenting a visual history of Billings Township and Manitoulin Island for present and future generations. The Billings Museum Committee is responsible for the running of the Old Mill Heritage Centre and the Post Office Museum. 

How it began:

Billings Township had a heritage building that was not being used. The museum board took it over with the intention of housing a museum inside. Short term government funding made it operational.

To date:

We have developed a functioning multi-media resource centre that explores life in Billings Township, Agriculture, Shipping, Commercial Fishing, Sawmills, local military history and the infamous Daniel Dodge tragedy.



Check out Mariners Park.
