This is an old functioning mill in a serene park. I have gone there just to walk around as well as a tour of the park and the mill. The guides were local volunteers providing valuable information. A must see for ice cream.

The mill itself is in superb condition. They'll even show you how it works and mill actual grain. They take pride in making it an educational experience and its well worth the trip as a result.
