A great historical area.

this place is a gem whether the herring are running or not. just be careful crossing the road because cars sometimes do not slow down

We went as 3 adults and a 3 year old when it was closed after the herring fish were done running and still enjoyed it. The sound of the water...the fragrance of the flora ... the calm beauty of minnows and bass basking in the warm sunlite pools was so soul-nuturing. Free and worth the trip. Please note - trails...

The museum was closed but it was fun to hike the grounds and follow the mill stream as it winds it way towards the bay. We picked up a few small sticks from the ground and placed them in the stream and cheered them on as they raced downward.

Would love to see the herring run but our timing wasn't right. Regardless this is a very pretty little stop to walk around the stream ( both sides of the road). If you're in the area it is just a short little stop -add it to the itinerary.

We walked around the grounds a bit and took pictures. Nice photo opportunity, but it wasn't officially open for the season.

While not a major attraction, it is a nice place to walk around for a few minutes and take photographs. I have heard the herring run is a site to behold, but I have yet to see it. The parking lot is small, so get there early.

This was a beautiful stop and great for photography. Look for the schools of fish in the pond! Make sure to check out both sides of the road.

Watching the herring and alewives jumping up a stony run was absolutely enthralling! Who would have thought?! It was cool to see them jump from one level to another only to be swept down again. Hundreds of fish moving in hopes of getting back to their birthplace to spawn once again. We were a group of adults but there were... More

If you time your trip right, you can see the herring run. The fish can be a bit tricky to see, but those with enough patience should wait by the parts of the river where seagulls wait. If you are as patient as the seagulls are, you may be rewarded by one catching and eating a herring. Real fun to... More
