  • Personal tour was amazing. .. Carl was so patient with our children and very knowledgeable about everything. Love going there! I go every time we come to RI : )
  • Tour was interesting and included real working machines from the 1700's. Saw a replica of the waterwheel. Guide was knowledgeable and clearly interested in the topic. He was open to questions as well.
  • We went on a field trip today, and with the exception of Mr. Jay and Ms. Amanda, the other presenters were fairly rude and obviously don't know how to properly engage grade school children to keep them interested and content. It's a shame that a place with such a wealth of knowledge can really turn off a child's interest so easily due to poor presentation.
  • A beautiful historic place to visit. They have cotton gins and other artifacts from the mill era here. Wonderful view out the original windows to see the river, and how it would power the mill.
  • Great place to get some history & enjoy the water views. Back to nature. WARM & I just love this place...
