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.

I agree with Rickam1. The cost is the price of a good cup of coffee. Well worth the visit. My brother and I thoroughly enjoy it

The mill wasn't open when we were there but we were free to explore the grounds and it was worth the time we spent.
