Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Built between 1804 and 1837 by James Barton, The Upper Mill still retains an operating water wheel which is accessible to the public through a free self-guided tour. Run for many years by the Rowe Brothers, The Upper Mill originally served as a hub to local tradesmen containing wood and metal shops, a black smith and grist mill; today it is home to a country store, a café/bakery and bar. It is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places and serves well as a lively jocund glimpse into a bygone staple of American life.
The Upper Mill is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • Enjoyed seeing how a grist mill worked. Hard to imagine running this mill and what a hard job the workers had. I wish the lighting in the building had been a bit brighter, though!  more »
  • This mill is now well labeled and was running well during our recent visit. It provides a good way to understand how water power can be put to good use.  more »
