    An old mill on a pond surrounded by green lawns and trees. Kids who learn fishing techniques from their dad on the banks of the pond. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere. We are passing through, let's take a walk and take some pictures of this little piece of serenity.

    Working mill with water driven wheel and picturesque mill pond. Beautiful homes nearby. The mill is good for 30 minutes with a chance to see the workings and even but some stone ground corn meal. Young kids will like it better than teens. Nice little spot to walk around. Sandwich Glass Museum is across the street (glass blowing demos, history of glass making on the Cape, loads of displays....(great for art lovers), Hoxie House 2-3 minute walk up the block (circa 1675 farm house) and several vintage / antique shops and cafés nearby.
