We stopped by on our way back to Birmingham from Childersburg. Wish we hadn't. The mill has seen a better day and, if there is an effort to save/preserve it, someone needs to get busy. We paid the $3/person "admission fee", but still unsure why/what...More

We happened to pass this place on the way to DeSoto Caverns and I'm glad we did. The gentleman guided us around and told us all about the history and background of the mill. He made us feel at home. Would love to go back.

This place is pretty cool. It's worth a visit at least once. It is free to get in if I remember correctly.

Pretty cool place hope the can get the mill open again. It needs some structural support as well as financial support. Nice spot for a picnic.

After going to Desoto Caverns stop here for a trip back in time. Definitely a stop to remember where we were and how we got where we are now. Gratitude and slowing down are important.

Beautiful old grist mill and covered bridge. Enjoyed a 'private' golf cart tour of one of the hiking trails which was a treat. Beautiful variety of trees and tasted paw paws for the first time. Am so glad they are saving the mill - a...More

I agree with Rickam1. The cost is the price of a good cup of coffee. Well worth the visit. My brother and I thoroughly enjoy it

The mill wasn't open when we were there but we were free to explore the grounds and it was worth the time we spent.
