Overview
More
Plimoth Grist Mill is a restored and fully functioning grist mill located on Town Brook in Plymouth, Massachusetts, only a few minutes away from Mayflower II and the waterfront. The mill is a reproduction of the 1636 mill built by the Pilgrims in Plimoth Colony, and construction was completed in 1970. The mill runs on Saturdays and Wednesdays from noon to 3 pm, where you can see our miller grin corn into cornmeal. On non-milling days, let our tour guides show you around and explain the history of the mill from 1636 onwards, discussing the effects local industry had on the environment as well as the steps being taken to preserve the ecology of the Town Brook area today.

This is a currently operating grist mill that is interesting to see and hear about. There is a guide both upstairs and downstairs to explain it more. Allow half an hour to see and hear.

Educational for those not having had this experience. I have been to grist mills in Virginia and in Oklahoma and in Arkansas.

Entrance to this place was part of our ticket for Plimouth Plantation. It is interesting to hear the story of the mill and see the corn being ground (certain days only). They have a cute gift shop where you can buy freshly ground flours and...More

The mill was in complete operation during our visit and then we actually got to watch them stop it and take it apart to clean it. Fantastic little gift shop on the property as well with lots of great food items and souvenirs.

So this is working reproduction of a mill. We went when they were setting it up and preparing for an afternoon of grinding. The miller walked us through everything about setting it up to operate, how and why it works the way it does. Very...More

We went here because our all-in-one paid for a visit. Besides that, had I known how dull this stop was I would not have bothered. There isn't much there to see, and it's kind of boring. Unless watching grains being ground into flour really excites,...More

However, we were disappointed with this Grist Mill. We had to ask questions to get the people to tell us anything about the Grist Mill. Workers were more busy talking to each other than to the people who were visiting.

round and round and round. You get what you might expect when you go to the Plimouth Grist Mill. You get a mill. The water pushes the wheel. The wheel turns a pole. The pole turns a giant stone against another. Stuff gets ground up....More
