The Grist Mill is located beside Keremeos Creek, on Upper Bench Road just one kilometer east off Highway 3A on the north side of Keremeos. Surrounded by the mountains in a near-desert environment, the Grist Mill and Gardens seems like an oasis with its shade trees, colourful flower beds and the waters of the creek flowing through the property. Inside the store/house, now called the Exhibit building, there is a model of the mill and an area devoted to explaining the restoration process.
Crowsnest Highway - In 1876 or ’77, on a lot in the bottoms of Keremeos Creek adjacent to the site of the HBC post on what is now Upper Bench Road, Barrington Price built a grist mill. Re-equipped in the early ’80s with the latest in machinery including a Barford and Perkins grinder, a Eureka grain cleaner and a James Jones roller.
