  • We used to live near Colvin Run Mill before moving south to an area that’s famous for shrimp and grits. We’ve yet to find any commercial grits that are nearly as good as the ones made at Colvin Run...  more »
  • The old mill is over 200 years old and still works! The general store has old time candies and toys. A nice place to visit.  more »

  • Colvin run mill is wonderful. I brought my kids here to take a step into the past to learn what it was like to live and bake in "olden times". My kids were eager to get involved and learn more. The staff was wonderful, warm, and kind. I will definitely make a return trip.
  • On the first and third Sundays of each month they open the sluice gate and set the mill in operation.(Other days they give a guided tour of the mill) It's fascinating to see the giant gears turn and the grain move through the process. There is also a blacksmith on site, and the day we were there wood carvers were on site and giving lessons. Purchase tickets from the reproduction general store on the premises, which also sells grits, cornmeal, and flour.
  • This place is so freaking cool. Working Mill with grain produced. All of the people have so much knowledge to share. Ask lots of questions! Black Smith was there showcasing skills and we were lucky to have period actors from the Maryland militia too!
  • It would have been even more beautiful without the highway noise
  • Great place for history and anquaint general store.
