Just a fun place to take the kids or the adults too. They have many summer programs but love the homemade ice cream one. Cool place to just take a walk through and slow down a little in life. Take the phones out of your hands and just stroll through time. The well needed rest feels great!

I always remembered catching a fish as a kid, and I recently moved back to the area and discovered that it was right next door at Newlin Grist Mill!!! It is an amazing place to take kids to explore nature and try out fishing. It also has some nice short trails to walk.

We spent a couple of hours here. There are some hiking trails on the property which are easy to walk on. As well there are a number of old building to view, and, best of all a working blacksmith shop from the 1700's or so. Nice place to pass an hour or two.

My friend and I were on our way to the botanical garden when we saw the sign for this place. Having already been to the garden, we decided to stop by. What a pleasant surprise to find this wonderful little gem. While it costs $5 to get a tour by 2pm and the restrooms are closed at 4pm, the mill... More

Newlin Grist mill is a treat anytime you go. The kids have attended camps there, I've walked with my friends, we've gone on family hikes, had picnics, done Girl Scout hikes or just stopped off for 15 minutes to enjoy nature. It's always beautiful, clean and peaceful. Highly recommended for a little serenity.

The Newlin Grist Mill is a working mill, open to the public for demonstrations. Great exhibit for children 6 and up. Nice picnic grounds, fishing and trails. Guided tours. They need our help since the dam was washed away by heavy rains in late April 2014. Please visit the website for fundraising information. http://www.newlingristmill.org/

It is small and all the buildings are kept locked up and can only be viewed on the scheduled tours, even if no one else is around.
