A mill we just happened to encounter. Full of history, as well as many antiques. Questions were encouraged and descriptions were made easy to understand. They continue to make Shaker boxes .

The only Shaker Box manufactuering in the country. Fabulous gift shop, and antique barn. A trip down memory lane.

It's a remarkable experience to "time travel" (backward) at Frye's Measure Mill. The wood work is stunning in its simplicity and design, and it is a gift to wander through the rooms of the shop in the oldest water-driven mill in our country. The smooth,...More

The only water-powered box mill east of the Mississippi, I think, with very interesting tours and a beautiful gift shop. Great place to bring out-of-town visitors!

Great place to see a piece of history. Nice to know some people embrace the pass enough, to keep the tradition alive. It only takes about an hour to wander around. Nice stop!
