We stopped on a weekday on the fall, so the mill wasn't running and no interactive tours. However, we found this to be an educational as well as an enjoyable stop. It doesn't take a long time to tour the mill site, yet the time...More

This is just a bit of history (water-driven mill, country store and surroundings) that has miraculously survived (essentially unspoiled) into the present. No rides, no thrills, no hype--just a sense of space and time that rewards whatever commitment you can make to it. Go; leave...More

Went to an outdoor event here and it was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Before the event, the whole family looked around and learned a little too.

On a beautiful Saturday we were taking back roads to Tablerock Park, just enjoying the countryside. We passed a pasture full of cars and a brown attraction sign that aid Hagood Mill. We hung a U-turn to see what was going on. A working water...More

We throughly enjoyed our visit! There are so many buildings to explore and the petroglyph museum was such a great bonus. We spent over an hour on the grounds. The grounds are wheelchair accessible with a few difficult spots to maneuver.

The mill is of historical interest and fun to see in operation. The people who are there will explain how a Grist Mill works and you can see it in operation. For anyone that enjoys grits, the fresh milled white grits are outstanding. Consider making...More

The mill will not be in operation on other days. The waterwheel is kept wet for preservation and so is usually turning very slowly.

There is a picnic table at Hagood, but don't recall about grill at either location - would plan on pre made sandwiches instead.

There is a solid dirt path that runs the length of the grounds, parts may be bumpy. One side is a small hill--opposite the mill and wheel. Of course the nature trails are packed dirt paths. Getting to the mill and water... More
