Drove by August 30th to take a photo and there is major construction going on. A lot of it looks gutted. I guess we will try next year to see what it becomes.

Grist mill is beautiful and makes for a great photo but not much else to see. Restaurant was closed. Took a photo & left.

We like the mill restaurant but be ready to eat a lot of food. Some things come standard with a meal. Food is good and service was good.

Just an old mill stuck on the side of the road... nothing much to see here. Construction was going on when we got there... very boring.

Great little spot to take pictures on the way to the forbidden caverns. They're doing some concrete work on a pad on one side as of today.

We had seen this mill (est. 1880) several years ago when we went to Forbidden Caverns, as you pass it on the same road on the way there. We stopped back then to take pictures even though it just looked abandoned at the time. This...More

I don't see why not. It's outdoors, and when I went a few months ago, nothing was open. We only stayed about 10 minutes.
