Overview

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.

This was an interesting and educational visit. It taught all that you could want to learn about the workings of a corn mill.

It was fun to learn about an actual working mill powered by the water. I loved the history of it. I brought back some of the ground corn too.

We were not able to see the mill "gristing" but still enjoyed it. The guides were pleasant and interesting and the prices of the grits and cornmeal in the gift shop were reasonable.it was a nice stop and added to our Plymouth visit.
