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.

Very nice grounds, and walked the path down to Plymouth Harbor. Kids enjoyed seeing how the gristmill works.

“interesting”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

not historic as far as being there so many many years ago but... fascinating to see and that it is still a working mill to this day.

“Fascinating technology.”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Please mark this on your must-do list if you visit this lovely historic seaside town. I find it amazing that they were able to build such a sophisticated peice of technology only six years after landing in Plimoth. The staff goes out of their way to explain how it all works and what they do with the grains once they are ground. There's also a beautiful trail that leads you to downtown area and the Mayflower located just behind the mill. Enjoy!

“Very informational”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We traveled in and they were getting set up for their grinding of corn. It was going to be a long process to get ready so she told us when to come back for the grinding. We went back and sure enough they were grinding the corn. They described the whole process and told us about the whole operation and about the people who do the operation and their training. Very informational and answered all of our questions. Amazing how someone can make these stones to grind.
