Mill Around Sundays - Wood Carving
Watch the gristmill in action as Miller Johnathan Lutz demonstrates the grinding of corn on the fourth Sunday of each month. Use your elbow grease to try some hand-grinding, watch the gears turn, and peek out the window at the 28' high water wheel. (Grinding demonstration included with regular self-guided tour fee.)
$7.00 admission inside the mill
