  • It doesn't look like it from the outside but it's a REALLY solid museum. The first part in the upper portion of the mill was really interesting. The guide, Frank, knew a ton about the mill as well as the surrounding area and history from when the area was settled. He gave a lot of info insights that history books never mention. The bottom portion of the museum is setup to process the corn that the mill runs (the mill itself only runs on the weekend). The woman running that area knew a lot about what she was doing and did a nice job of explaining it and showing us all of the steps. Between the two guides you get a full understanding of how a mill works and the products it can produce. I would highly recommend you go if you're in the area since it's relatively inexpensive (especially compared to other museums in the area) and was a good place to stop when it's raining.
  • This was part of a combination ticket and it was pretty decent to walk through. It would have been better if we had visited on a day that they were actually grinding corn, instead we saw a video on how it is done. They had a few interactive things downstairs for the kids, which my 11 year old took advantage of and liked.
