The old milll is being restored.. slowly... but it's worth the 5 mile drive just to see the rustic setting. I'm prejudiced because my mother was from the White family who owned the mill years ago.

On the National Registry of historical places, White's Mill was interesting to see. Included were 3 small floors of antique machinery, which still operate periodically. Renovations are still in progress. The surrounding countryside is quite picturesque. Admission is free; but open only Wed. through Sun. 10am - 5pm. Don't miss the really cute general store (across the road) with the... More

My wife and I took a little side trip to see the mill. Although we were a little disappointed to find that it is not fully restored, we were pleased to learn of its history and explore the facility. The little shop across the street was charming, and the hostess was very helpful.

It was interesting but no longer functions. The little store next door was worth a few minutes. The shopkeeper wasn't very friendly.

The mill itself was interesting as a building and some of the machinery. There was no one there when we visited. It was pretty chilly inside on a cool day. We enjoyed it.

This is a treasure and deserves a visit. Learn how corn and other grain was processed in the past. Take home some fresh ground flour or other product.

Loved the place till someone decided to put siding on the place and ruined the whole thing, such a shame! It is totally ruined now in my honest opinion! Thank God I got photographs before these people did this to the place! I am heart sick that someone would ruin a place like this! What were they thinking?

Enjoyed this historic venue. Still a work in progress but worth the trip to enjoy. The gift shop is a one of a kind place also.
