A Little History
Mrs. Mitchell’s Restaurant opened its doors in 1980, named in tribute to the school’s last and longest serving teacher, for her many years of dedication to her students.
The schoolhouse, was full of rich history from Mrs. Mitchell herself. Built in 1889, Mulmur Township School Section 2 operated for 79 years before closing in 1968. The school and surrounding community together survived the social and cultural upheaval of two World Wars and the Great Depression.
The Orange Lodge across the road played an important role in the lives of early settlers in our region. As a gathering place it was vital to the fraternity and identity of its members. Th e building became home to Granny Taught Us How in 1978.
Both historic landmark buildings were renovated with great care and respect for their heritage. We still enjoy that enduring sense of community here in the hamlet of Violet Hill.
