  • The Mingus Mill is a living piece of history. I really enjoyed the short walk along the flume to river. The mill has a few items for sale. The cornflour is produced on site. A few exhibit boards explain the history and machinery of the mill on both the first and second floor.
  • Great place to bring your kids to see a historic water powered grist mill. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Very short, walkable trail from the parking lot.
