  • A real interesting place to stop and learn about the history of a prominent family from the area. A very interesting gentleman showed a brief video about the mill then gave us the tour of the mill and even ground some corn to show us the process. We then visited the old homestead right next door to the mill.
  • The tour not only showed the mill, but also the home and grounds. The tour guide demonstrated how the mill operated with a live demonstration. The tour is free.
  • A great way to go back in time.The mill was built in 1760 and is located in noncommercialized area of Amish country.
