Description provided by Editors

Lining the banks of the Mississippi River, Almonte was once a thriving textiles centre. The town boasts beautiful architecture, a textiles museum, the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area, and a museum dedicated to former resident Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball. Hiking, cross-country skiing, and nature-watching attract outdoor enthusiasts year-round.
