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.

“The Mill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

The mill was in need of a part and not working when we arrived but that didn't lessen the enjoyment it provided. Mike our interpreter was extremely knowledgeable and gave lots of details. It may have been broken but the tour guides knew a great deal and were willing to spend time answering questions.

“Spring break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Combined this part of the museum with the plantation and the MayflowerII. This is one of the many grist mills we've ever toured so it was much of the same but it was a well run, comprehensive tour. The guides explained how this grist mill relates to the land of Plymouth. We didn't invest much time here but it was well worth our time just the same. Lovely location.

A small mill where you can buy real corn meal ground on site. It's a wonderful bit of history for children to see how the early settlers made their dietary staple.

“A bit of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

We enjoyed a tour of this property which is in a lovely garden setting. The watermill was still working and there is a nice cafe attached. Its a lovely spot to take children and watch the ducks.

“Really a great learning experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

The mill is fascinating. Not only can you see the whole mill operating, but you can understand the minute details with the scale model on hand. You can also sift corn and evening grind it with a pestle and mortar if you want! The staff are super knowledgeable and I look forward to going back again!
