Good place to see Delaware Counnty history and explore the acreage. There are picnic tables for a picnic lunch and many views for the painter or sketcher to use for a masterpiece.

I have enjoyed this location for years. There are historic buildings, quiet spots. Man made waterfalls. This is a good spot for photo sessions. Nice to get away from it all for a little while.

Tour the mill, and the foundry and then walk along the creek listing the kids play on the rocks and splash about. a wonderful summer escape day. I think you can take a picnic and bring a frisbee to toss.
