  • Great mill, good location and a perfect spot for a picnic and to stretch your legs as you’re traveling. They do mill demonstrations, so check out their Facebook page to see if they are milling when...

  • Visited the restored grain mill at Mill Springs KY with my son. The mill was closed but we could see how the water fed the mill wheel and the grinding apparatus. The site is well maintained however...

  • This place is an amazingly well preserved historical site. Make sure to look up the dates/tints that they will be operating the grist mill. Watching that huge water wheel turn and hearing/feeling the grinding stones as they grind corn is very cool. The man working the mill stated that he'd been there for 29 years and grew up at the mill because his father worked there before him. Apparently they only run the mill at 1/3 of its speed because it'll grind all of the corn into meal too fast. At full speed the mill can grind 1800 lbs/hour! Wow! I'll definitely be back with visiting relatives.
  • Nice water fall big water wheel
