Loved the Old Mill. It was Educational and Fun. Lots if dust but that is expected in a Mill. Lots if fun educational things to do in Mt Veiw and go by Marie's and eat or get you some ice cream!!

Included in the ticket price of the cave tour, it is an old mill site with part of the structure still standing, great photo ops, close to the dam and springs are about 1/2 mile upstream. Well maintained walkways make easy access for everyone.

Is this place even open? Every time we go we try to go as this is the last thing in Mountain View we have not done and so far we can't catch anyone there.

I went to the Old Mill as a child with my dad to get corn ground into meal. It was old when I was a kid. I'm glad that this landmark in Mountain View has been preserved.
