This place is not from "must see" category. Reconstruction side of old mill. No good environment - highways and place for homeless.

The site was not open we visited, but you can walk around and enjoy the history. The Mill was not being supplied with water or rotating. I don't know if it even works any longer. Nicely landscaped with stone walks and small bridges which offer...More

This mill is located underneath the bridge that connects New London and Groton - you hear the traffic while you look at the mill - The building was closed, but seeing the outside and the surroundings was very nice.

Worth the visit - and please leave a donation to keep this wonderful place open. The waterwheel is actually running. The place is under Rt95, so it's noisy. You won't be able to video the ambient sounds...

Love old mills. This is a hidden gem amongst all the big, state of the art bridges. Worth the trek. It sits under the bridges and has a pull out. Great photo ops.

This is the site of the original 1650 mill, but that burned down in the early 1800's and this is the replacement. So the "built 1650" sign is a bit deceptive. Not much to see. Wheel not working and inside is office space.

Having read the previous reviews, I knew this would be a short stop. We found it very easily and yes, it is located under the highway. It was not opened which again not a surprise. This little gem was a great foliage picture spot. So...More
