They were closing down soon, but the gentleman was so kind and gave us a little tour after we paid only $3 each. He told us some of the history and significance of the mill, and... 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.

Our tour guide (I wish I had written his name down) showed us everything about the mill and surrounding area. I wish we would have had time to take a nature trail walk but we didn't. He made us feel as if we were the only people there. Thank you Sir. We will be back.

This place is pretty cool. It's worth a visit at least once. It is free to get in if I remember correctly.

I picked this place for a birthday adventure because something about it being the "oldest city in America" popped up on Facebook. They also said they had a covered bridge and were a park. Admission was $3 a piece and my son likes to take pictures so why not. There was not really a good place to park. We were... More

Pretty cool place hope the can get the mill open again. It needs some structural support as well as financial support. Nice spot for a picnic.

After going to Desoto Caverns stop here for a trip back in time. Definitely a stop to remember where we were and how we got where we are now. Gratitude and slowing down are important.

Beautiful old grist mill and covered bridge. Enjoyed a 'private' golf cart tour of one of the hiking trails which was a treat. Beautiful variety of trees and tasted paw paws for the first time. Am so glad they are saving the mill - a real treasure. We look forward to it running again one day but am glad that... More

My brother and I went here today. Lovely little Grist Mill and covered bridge. The caretaker gave us a tour and it explained so much to us. His knowledge was superb. Thank you for a delightful memorable visit. And it is by donation. Lots of walking trails
