Old Mill Cultural Centre

While the island and people of Dominica have grown and changed over the decades, at the Old Mill Cultural Center, they remember and preserve that culture, teaching it to their children and to the visitors who show interest. Come see this surviving modern culture of the past, including art works and performances.


The Old Mill Cultural Center is a community level civic center, where groups and individuals can perform and exhibit their ideas, products, and works of art. The regular flow of exhibits will give any visitors a unique insight into the cultural heritage of the island, both modern and historical. In addition, the building itself is part of that past. The Old Mill was the first sugarcane mill on Dominica, marking the start of an era for the island.
