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.

We live just minutes from the Grist Mill and have been there many times over the years. The property is absolutely gorgeous with acres upon acres of tree line paths, a meadow, fishing ponds and creek not to mention the Mill itself and the other historic buildings. The Grist Mill has so many activities for families to enjoy- a fishing... More

I come here very often. I love taking the trails for long walks. There are some hidden picnic areas throughout the trails if you want to get away from the tables at the main area. They can get a bit busy on a nice summer weekend. I haven't been fishing here so I can't comment on that but there is... More

This place is great for all ages. We love to come here and have a picnic by the stream and then go for a lovely hike on their trails. They have a nice pond for fishing for the kids. And the mill is very interesting and informative. A great outing.

First of all, this is a FREE attraction with FREE parking. How often do you find that? The land includes a small waterfall, a mill race, a blacksmith shop, a log cabin, a mill with museum, and a miller's home. There are guided tours that are about $5 per person, according to their website. If you don't want to spend... More
