Most historic buildings were not originally designed to accommodate people with disabilities. Providing access (interior and exterior) for persons with disabilities in ways that preserve the character of the historic property is a challenge that requires creativity and collaboration. As we seek to make improvements to the built environment, we are focusing our attention on providing digital and print images for physically inaccessible spaces and increasing outdoor interpretive programming. Please contact us for more details.

Our site currently consists of:

  • Designated accessible parking spaces on a gravel parking area.
  • There is a wooden boardwalk crossing the river (scheduled to be replaced this season)
  • The historic building has a small ramp leading into the building.
  • The main floor of this historic building allows for access using mobility devices although fixed machinery creates some narrow spaces.
  • The lower and upper floors are only accessible via wooden staircases but pictures of these areas are available and staff are on hand to share stories and answer questions.
  • Staff are trained to give guided tours to all guests (English only)
  • Fire alarms are auditory.
  • Seating is available both inside and on the property.
  • Gender-neutral washroom.
  • The Barrington Woolen Mill is proud to be an Aira Access Partner.

We will update this page as we make improvements.
