  • We are so happy that we stopped in Delta to check out this historic place. The staff were very well informed, dressed in period costumes, and charming. You may see a couple of folks just hanging out in the gift shop near the entrance, they're usually members of the restoration group, and full of fun facts. The exibits are well labeled, and well explained. The building itself is the star of the show. One of the volunteers had made brownies and was giving them away to us visitors. The gift shop had some fresh all grain flour we bought.
  • We took a wonderful tour of the historic mill. The young lad that gave us a tour was extremely knowledgeable and answered every single question we threw at him. It’s so nice to see this building fixed up. They have wonderful displays. There is a small gift shop and if you’re lucky you can get flour made right from the mill. There is no admission charge but donations are always excepted. Please look through all of my photos so you have an idea of what to expect.
  • A pleasant surprise for the quaint but sparce little town of Delta. Guides dressed in the era to match take you on a very educational tour of the old Stone Mill. The amazing thing is this Mill still uses the old stones to create and sell small quantities of flour. A must stop for anyone traveling through or staying at Delta.
  • Wonderful and clean. It is in use and you can enquire about the dates when you can meet the miller, see the organic Red Fife wheat be ground and buy some (even baked bread). Run by knowledgeable volunteers.
  • Had a wonderful informative tour! Thanks for educating us! This mill is such a cool/interesting piece of history!
