This mill was 90 miles from my house each way and well worth the drive. The mill is in a picturesque location, great for fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking, or simply photographing the mill itself.

This place is beautiful, a peaceful and scenic setting. Nancy, the docent on duty today, gave us a wonderful tour of the mill and its history. This is a well-preserved and wonderful site to visit.
