Small area but very lovely and with some historical importance. The mill was not working during our visit but it was still impressive. There are multiple little waterfalls and a tall one. The place is certainly lovely but and you descend to the lake you'll...More

You will love the scenery and atmosphere of this park. You can walk down to the lake with its 117 stairs. Or peek at the many different little waterfalls behind the mill. Some weekends the mill grist is running and you can see the corn...More
