  • 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.
  • If you walk through this area, stop for a few photos, nice place. Not sure if there is anything to see inside, we did not check that.
  • A tiny historic mill that is reconstructed according to its original. The tour guides tell about the story of the mill and futhermore they illustrate and describe how the mill works. Not to mention they also try to sell you corn meal and recipes :)
  • Love the grist mill and the reno looks great
  • The rare mill you can start yourself and see in action.
