  • Excellent insight into our local history. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. This is a must see@
  • This mill is a great example of a typical Grist Miss from the modern 19th century. It still works today producing red fufe grain using a French Stone (Original to the mill - no joke). The flour is the made into bread the can be purchased. Out of this world. The mill also has an active blacksmith shop that can be visited with its blacksmith onsite every Saturday. Highly recommended.
  • 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.
  • Amazing old working mill. Great tour guide. Buy red fife flour milled onsite
  • A very good historical restoration. A must see at Christmas time with all the lights in the windows. Also a must see for the workings of an old water driven mill.
