wish i'd gotten a historic tour. the mill grinds several types of grains and visitors can watch up close. the employees weren't disposed to explanations the day i visited however.
We found Metamora, in general to be run down. We have visited in the past and thought it quaint, but I don't feel it a place to even visit any longer.
