Great place for someone wanting to visit an off the path place where you can see how wheat and corn was processed years ago. Also an old covered bridge used during the days of horse and wagon. Covered bridges calmed the horses while traversing across...More

The Mill is huge, 3 stories high and you get to explore all 3 stories. Admission was $3 and well worth the history lesson that the guide gave us. The gift shop is nice, we purchased a bag of grits and homemade Paw Paw jelly...More

This was an unexpected detour. Saw a sign and made a turn. Such an interesting and historical place. The guys were ready and willing to share their passion. The grist mill still is used and is amazing. It's ran with belts and pulleys using water...More

We stopped by on our way back to Birmingham from Childersburg. Wish we hadn't. The mill has seen a better day and, if there is an effort to save/preserve it, someone needs to get busy. We paid the $3/person "admission fee", but still unsure why/what...More

It is what it is. It's of course a gristmill and covered bridge but it's nothing to get excited about there's a gristmill that older than this one in clay county al. Yes it's part of history but they act as if it's the only...More

We happened to pass this place on the way to DeSoto Caverns and I'm glad we did. The gentleman guided us around and told us all about the history and background of the mill. He made us feel at home. Would love to go back.
