Owner description: Built in 1846, this water-powered mill served Napa Valley's farmers who brought their wheat grain and dried corn to the mill to be ground into flour and meal. Bale Grist Mill has one of the largest waterwheels in the country and still mills grain the old-fashioned way! Visitors can take home organic wheat flour, cornmeal or polenta. Come enjoy what was once a vital part of rural life!

You can walk through by yourself, but we suggest that you wait for the guided tour through this 19th-century mill, which has the largest water-wheel west of the Mississippi. It was a fascinating experience for all 3 of us, an elderly couple with our 12-year-old grand-daughter. This is one of the 70 California state parks which are scheduled to be closed later this year (2011), so SEE IT NOW!
