Stopped for a visit of the mill. Luckily the blacksmith was demonstrating in the ajacient building. He provided lots of information about the iron working history of the area. Once in the mill, a young lady gave us an interesting tour and we were able to revisit the information panels we still wanted further detail about. Gorgeous historic site in brilliant condition. Worth the stop.

We went to Delta on alarm and was pleasantly surprised by the mill.

We walked through on our own although the staff was always around for questions. Very professional displays and will taken care of building.

Pleasantly surprised with the guides of this museum. They love telling the story about this mill. You get a true sense of stepping back in time. The mill is now "well loved". It is worth another trip for us!

If you're one of those people who think that history isn't only about rich and famous people and their big houses and palaces and about famous events and dates, but that history was made by the thousands of everyday people like you and me, living everyday lives and doing everyday jobs, then you must visit this old stone mill to see how a staple of everyday society, the flour mill churned out the staple of everyday life, wheat flour, and how the millers of the day worked.

Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and told us some very interesting bits of history about the mill and also about the region.

And the mill is not an ancient relic. The mill is fully functional even today, even though it doesn't operate all the time like a factory. So don't forget to buy their flour, milled by stone, just as it was done back in the day, or even their bread if they have any. (I think they bake it once a week.)

Saw a sign for the Old Stone Mill & decided to check it out. Wow! This was one of the most informative & intriguing tours we have been on in a long time. The Mill itself is beautiful. The guides are very knowledgable & passionate about the history of this Mill (Anna was our guide through the mill). They make you want to hear more. We didn't have children with us. However, if we did, I know the guides would have had them just as excited to hear more. There isn't a fee to tour. However, they do accept donations which I hope everyone who tours is generous enough to donate. I would hate if they ever had to close such a beautiful place. I hope to come back again!

The displays in the mill were very well marked and informative and a person walking throughout to answer any questions we may have. Well preserved piece of local history.
