  • This explanation/demonstration us the best I've ever seen, and I've seen these things in several states! It covered the mechanical and practical aspects of a grist mill, and how it functions, as well as how the water actually does run it. Clear concise, interesting, and made easy to understand! Our guide even said that engineers are most interested, and anxious to crawl in there and figure it out, which, of course, is not allowed, for their own protection(trust me, I'm married to one for years, and they just discount their own need for safety!). He really enjoyed the talks, too! You can even buy some of the ground corn, if you want!
  • While beautiful and very picturesque, I am not sure what all the fuss is about. There is no parking and very crowded street intersection. I would avoid if you have something better to do or want to see. Not worth it. Just look at the pictures posted by me and other posters to save yourself the trouble, headache, and time.
