Colvin run mill is wonderful. I brought my kids here to take a step into the past to learn what it was like to live and bake in "olden times". My kids were eager to get involved and learn more. The staff was wonderful, warm, and kind. I will definitely make a return trip.
On the first and third Sundays of each month they open the sluice gate and set the mill in operation.(Other days they give a guided tour of the mill) It's fascinating to see the giant gears turn and the grain move through the process. There is also a blacksmith on site, and the day we were there wood carvers were on site and giving lessons. Purchase tickets from the reproduction general store on the premises, which also sells grits, cornmeal, and flour.
