The Sawmill

The Sawmill 2: Underground is at Lansdowne until Oct. 31.

Saunders Farm invites you to checkout the Sawmill, saying “This fall, we’re digging deeper.”

“In 2008, the City of Ottawa began demolition of the southside Grandstand at Lansdowne Park. After the dust settled, a hidden world emerged from the debris. And then, we found the lost colony of millworkers from early ByTown days … buried under the stands. They hadn’t had contact with the outside world for more than a century,” Saunders Farm says on The Sawmill website.

“In 2001, more than 15,000 people risked their lives attempting to secure the site from this colony. Many of those people are still missing. So, this fall, we’re digging deeper!”
