  • Wonderful staff! Our private tour was Steve and he went beyond the 30 min tour which was super awesome and very informative! Will definitely come back with my parents
  • Great piece of history - loved it here + took home pastry flour, cornmeal, and polenta milled on the spot!
  • The one and Only grist mill left in California... Another nearby treasure in NorCal. ❤️
  • Wonderful location! Ideal for any type of event.
  • Wonderful staff and a very fun and educational tour. They have some fantastic yearly events (Old Mill Days and Pioneer Christmas) which are open to the public in addition to their regular weekend tours. Come see a living piece of history! They will even do milling demonstrations using the actual water wheel! It's a great excuse to get out and enjoy the outdoors and you can use their picnic tables for a lunch.
