Very small museum showing the workings of an authentic grist mill. Both the museum and the grounds are delightful, but this would't be fun in bad weather because so much of it is outside. Also, there's a charming creek that we loved, but which might...More

Well worth a visit as an employee is there to explain the history and the operation of the mill. The corn meal and wheat that is milled there is used for the Wayside Inn restaurant.

What an absolutely beautiful location. Family picnics and spring/summer wedding photos take place here on weekends. Loads of Kodak moments! Take pictures of the mill, the bridge by the stream - picture perfect.

As part of our walk around the Old Wayside Inn, we went to the Grist Mill. It was not open during the week, but we still saw some of the old mill stones, the spillway, and the water wheel.

Worth a stop if you're in the area, but not much to see. We thought the water would be 'turning' the waterwheel, but it was overflowing on the side of the mill. We spent 10 minutes there. Pretty area.

I don't know. The mill is only open part time. Call Longfellows Wayside Inn who manages the property. Their number is 978 443-1776. Bye,
