The Pioneer Trail at Barnston-Ouest (Way’s Mills) Daniel Way

DANIEL WAY
1794-1875

In the 19th century, the three mills established on the banks of the River Niger were pre-eminent in the development of the hamlet of Way’s Mills. Indeed, this idyllic place was named after the owner of the carding and wool weaving mill, Daniel Way. Mr. Way moved from the United States to Stanstead County in 1817. Then, in 1843, he established himself along the bank of the River Niger. Mr. Way was endowed with a remarkable business sense. He quickly acquired properties that enabled him and his family members to take an active part in the economic growth of Way’s Mills.
