“Go when staffed..a great demonstration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

And you can get a bag of flour ground right there at the mill! The staff is knowledgeable and the place is undeniably historical. Nice to see youngsters actually learning where flour comes from.

“Picturesque!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

A beautiful setting - historic - great for photos. Take a picnic here in the summer time. And don't forget the camera.

“Beautiful Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a great place to visit! The only draw back is that it is so beautiful that MANY families come to take their family photos in front of the Grist Mill and so there are alot of people and photographers! Very scenic and a great place to walk around, especially in the autumn.

“It's More that a Museum, It's a destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The Old Grist Mill is one of my favorites,,the stone work is a work of art, and the water wheel enhances its beauty and charm. And the Martha Mary Chapel is most beautiful..This is picture post card.
