  • Events here are fun, but this free to walk around spot outside of Sanford, Nc is a real gem to take the time to visit. If you go to take photos, make sure your photographer is playing by the rules...  more »
  • Scenic area just off the road. Features a scheduled mill crank up in the spring. Nice trails for walking and taking photos. Covered bridge.  more »
  • Come the first of May for the Ole Mill Crank Up. People from all over bring their antique engines to demonstrate. A lot of old fashion fun and relaxation.  more »
  • I loved exploring this place! I had it all to myself. Great place for photography buffs and history buffs alike.
  • Wonderful setting for an event. Very peaceful, with shade. The old Mill is great to explore. Weddings are beautiful here. We have also gone to weekend concerts and pottery festivals here. Always a pleasure.
  • A quiet place with many historic buildings. The grounds can be walked but the buildings were not open.
  • Went when they had reenactors, was very fun and learned new things
  • Beautiful spot to walk and take pictures. I especially love it in the fall! I love the pottery shop when it is open as well. I wish there were more public events, like concerts and vendor fairs, etc that we could attend here. I would also love more information on the site and buildings, like plaques with years and other details.
