Journey back to the time of America’s original settlers with a visit to Massachusetts' historic Plimoth Grist Mill. This working mill was built some 200 years ago, and still operates today, offering visitors a hands-on history lesson perfect for families and kids. Take a tour to learn how the water-powered mill was constructed and the process by which it turns ground local corn into delicious meal. The onsite gallery’s interactive exhibits feature knot tying and corn grinding with mortar and pestle for anyone ready to get their hands down and dirty.
While this historic mill is worth a stop all its own, combo tickets that include the nearby Mayflower II and Plimoth Plantation round out the New England experience.
The grist mill is located near the Town Brook and the scenic waterfront, as well as within close proximity to the Mayflower II. It is open 9am to 5pm daily between late March to the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It is closed during the winter season.
