“No Really, You HAVE to GO!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2009

The miller running the mill is worth your time and money easily! He is a real treasure! I know what many of you might say, "It's a grist mill", but think of it as a wonderful journey back in time to early Plymouth. The mill has been there since 1636...no really, the pilgrims established this only 16 years after landing in the area. Also many of the terms you use everyday came from mills and some from this mill in particular!
They have a mill tour/walking tour now that is even more worth it. You won't be disappointed.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 13, 2009

I went to Plymouth, Mass May 10, 2009 and I stopped in at the Jenny Grist Mill. This was in my opinion a much better stop than the Pilmouth Plantation that cost 4 times more. My tour guide was a cute elderly man that was very kind an knowledgeable. I truely enjoyed my stop here. It is so cute and so full of history. It is a brief stop the tour took maybe a 30 minutes so it is a good quick stop full of real history. A definite stop for anyone who appreciates history.

“Educational, fun and worth the time.”
Reviewed April 17, 2009

We were initially skeptical about taking this tour with our two boys (both under 10), but decided to try it. We were very glad we did. The 'miller' gave the tour, turned on the water flow and showed us how the giant water wheel is moved which turns the gears that drives the stones that grinds the corn. He was very knowledgeable about Plymouth and the personalities of the early settlers. He was in-character and had us laughing with great stories. This is the real deal, located on the initial land of the settlers. Go in April/May and see the herring travel up the fish ladder too.

“Don't Miss The Mill”
Reviewed May 2, 2005

The Jenney Grist Mill is the most underated spot in Plymouth! In a quick and inexpensive tour you not only learn how the mill works but how it saved the colonists from starvation. The owners are exteremely friendly and a wealth of knowledge.
