South Ohio Sawmill
South Ohio, Yarmouth County Nova Scotia

This familiar South Ohio land mark was originally constructed by a Mr. Patten.  It is presently owned by Mr. Bruce Gould (right).  It is now used as a lath mill.  The mill is in need of some repair and hopefully this important piece of South Ohio history will be preserved and maybe developed into a tourist attraction. Maybe it could be protected as an historical site.  It would be a shame to see it fade into the past.

(If anyone has more information on the mill please contact me Email:

At one time the mill was also owned by Asa K Crosby.
