Plimoth Grist Mill is a restored and fully functioning grist mill located on Town Brook in Plymouth, Massachusetts, only a few minutes away from Mayflower II and the waterfront. The mill is a reproduction of the 1636 mill built by the Pilgrims in Plimoth Colony, and construction was completed in 1970. The mill runs on Saturdays and Wednesdays from noon to 3 pm, where you can see our miller grin corn into cornmeal. On non-milling days, let our tour guides show you around and explain the history of the mill from 1636 onwards, discussing the effects local industry had on the environment as well as the steps being taken to preserve the ecology of the Town Brook area today.

We were a bit disappointed by the mill, however it may have been enjoyable with children because of the hands on educational activities available (I.e., mashing corn for grinding, etc.). We missed the time frame when the mill was actually running (which probably could be viewed from the sidewalk, thereby saving some money!

The mill was rebuilt in the 1970's to show what the original mill was like back in the 1630s. The staff was incredibly friendly and outgoing. You can tell they love working there. My recommendation is if you have enough flexibility in your schedule call ahead and find out what days they actual grind corn.

This used to be the Jenney Grist Mill and is located behind the Jenney Museum. It is a beautiful area tucked away behind the busyness of the city. Loved the Grist Mill and was able to capture some great photos. This would be a great place to picnic and there were lots of people walking the trail that goes under... More

Our tour bus guide called this the Jenney Grist Mill. We saw the outside and walked around for about 15 minutes. There was a $7 fee to do the tour and we didn't have time. The flowers were lovely here. The huge purpleish cabbage ones were beautiful.

We visited the mill last Friday 10/14 and were delighted that we could be there for a milling event. I cannot remember everyone's names, however, they all were very knowledgeable and skillful in their representations. The introductions were by Ethan who was quite knowledgeable in his opening presentation about the mill and the details of the corn, the stones, etc.... More

The mill is so picturesque with the water and the flowers and the added autumn colors. Presentation inside is good with the guide explaining the process of the milling. Cute gift shop. It takes less than a half hour to see so if you get the discount ticket for the mill, the Mayflower II and Plymouth Plantation it is worth... More

We re-visited The Mill after several years and were really impressed with the knowledge and interesting presentations of the staff. Kellum was on the upper floor where the grind stone is located and a young lady on the lower floor where the veers etc are located. Sorry about names/spelling. We established they both also work at the Plimoth Plantation and... More
