Owner description: Welcome to the Thomas Dexter Grist Mill! We offer tours of our mid-17th century grist mill nestled in the heart of Sandwich all 7 days of the week. As a fully operating site, we also sell fresh bags of our famous corn meal. Our mill is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a gorgeous view, an educational adventure, and a slice of local history!

Not sure where the most charm comes from! Is it this beautiful little historical mill or the staff that works there? This mill setting is classic. Fascinating to see how corn meal was produced long go. Special treat to keep a bag of Dexter's corn meal in the freezer for special occasions. A Thanksgiving tradition in my family... Corn bread and Indian pudding. Recipes available at the mill. The best.

Interesting for younger children, the tour guide decided to rib us throughout his talk because we are from the UK, all OK but it got a little boring after a while. Still interesting from an engineering perspective but 10 - 20 mins max

This is definitely a good stop to make. The nicest gentleman spent time telling us all about the history of the mill. There is a lot more to the mill than one would have imagined and that this was all done hundreds of years ago!
