This Christmas you can give both the history of Almonte and the folklore of Mississippi Mills on DVD or Blu-ray.
The complete story of Almonte’s history is told in a series of two 90 minute films. Disk One is “Almonte’s Interwoven Past” which covers from the very beginning in 1821 to the end of the 1950s. Disk Two, “Almonte: Transitions” picks the story up in 1960 and goes right up to the fall of 2013.
“The Ghosts of Mississippi Mills” is another 90 minute film featuring seven stories of ghostly encounters that occurred within Mississippi Mills as told by the people who actually experienced them. The film also includes numerous re-enactments of parts of the stories as played by a large cast of talented local actors.
