Barrington Woolen Mill Museum is at 2368 Hwy. 3 on the Barrington River. This was the last water-powered woolen mill to operate in eastern Canada. Built in 1882, it was in use until 1962. Displays follow the stages in the manufacture of yarn and cloth from raw wool, including spinning and weaving. A mural illustrates the history of farming in Nova Scotia and contains the first tartan created in the province.
