Owner description: Plimoth Grist Mill is a restored and fully functioning grist mill located on Town Brook in Plymouth, Massachusetts, only a few minutes away from Mayflower II and the waterfront. The mill is a reproduction of the 1636 mill built by the Pilgrims in Plimoth Colony, and construction was completed in 1970. The mill runs on Saturdays and Wednesdays from noon to 3 pm, where you can see our miller grin corn into cornmeal. On non-milling days, let our tour guides show you around and explain the history of the mill from 1636 onwards, discussing the effects local industry had on the environment as well as the steps being taken to preserve the ecology of the Town Brook area today.

“Fun stop”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This Grist Mill was a fun stop. I would recommend it for any age as the tour guide tries really hard to customize the tour to the group. Really enjoyed it.

“Probably even better if they are grinding the corn”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a very interesting place brought to life by the tour guides who are very passionate and knowledgeable about the mill. Unfortunately they were not grinding corn until the afternoon and we could not hang around to watch that. However, our guide's knowlegde of the whole process certainly allowed you to imagine it. The gift shop did sell the product but no room in our suitcases! We bought the ticket which allowed us discounted entry into the Mayflower II and the Plimoht Plantation which we thought was a good deal and ensured you took in all the sites.

“Very cool”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The grist mill is an interesting stop particularly if you dont have time for the plantation tour which takes a long time. There is ample parking right past the mill... And its literally a 2 minute walk away. The parking is free. There is a restaurant above you can eat at and a neat little gift shop (of course).

As for the tour. It was 20 minutes long, inexpensive and informative. The tour guides were nice and really knowledgeable. If you understand the definition of
Grist then you will know what to expect. The overall mechanics are very cool.. And this is a fully working grist mill. Even my kids liked it. Its about a 2 minute drive from Plymouth Rock. They offer discounts if you purchase the plymouth plantation tour as well.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

It was clear that our tourguide, John, was very passionate about the history he was talking about. He was informative and entertaining. This was a great stop on our vacation and we're looking forward to making something with our cornmeal that we bought!

“come visit”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Great tour! The tours are every 15 minutes so it is easy to get your own personal tour which we did. The price was just $6 each and it lasted for like an hour. The tour guide was great, I am disapointed I didn't get her name so I could recommend her. She was so inthusiatic about the mill and you could tell she really loved her job she cared about the mill. We were not there when the mill was working but we were told every tues and thurs they run it and you can then buy the corn meal it produces that day. Cute gift shop. Right next to free parking lot and beautiful lake. From there you can head down the famous Plymouth brooke which is well kept and has iphone audio tours.
