Mill Around Sundays - Soapmaking
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
