Mississippi Mills is a town in eastern Ontario, Canada, in Lanark County on the Mississippi River. It comprises the former Townships of Ramsay and Pakenham and the Town of Almonte. It is partly located within Canada's National Capital Region.
Pakenham, formally established in 1823, is known for the nearby Mount Pakenham, a popular skiing location, and the five-arch stone bridge crossing the Mississippi River. Built-in 1901, it is the only five-arch stone bridge in North America. The community is named for a brother-in-law to the Duke of Wellington, Major-General Sir Edward Pakenham, who was killed near the Mississippi River in the southern United States, commanding British forces at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815.
Settled in 1816, Almonte was one of the principal wool manufacturing towns of the Ottawa Valley. Formerly a separate municipality, the town along the Mississippi River has had many name changes: Shepherd's Falls, Shipman's Mills, Ramsayville, Waterford and then Almonte after a Mexican general.
