  • Out doing some site seeing while in the area and stopped by here. Great place to visit for local history. Well worth the time to visit.
  • Great visitor center with warm, welcoming staff. Peaceful hiking past wetlands and through woods. Historic Mill open for viewing on certain event days. Ample restrooms and water fountains.
  • Simply one of my favorite spots in the entire state. A beautiful piece of rural history 5 minutes from downtown Raleigh.
  • Very nice park, the mill is very interesting, the visitor has a small and interesting museum, The volunteers are very friendly and helpful. The trail around the pond is very nice and easy to walk. Very good place for a family outing .
  • The volunteers are wonderful. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and so kind to give their time for such a worthwhile cause. Try to make it to one of the working tours. A great place to spend the afternoon.
