Enjoyed learning about the history of the Mascot Roller Mills. Learned how flour and corn were milled using water power. Also enjoyed visiting the house of the owners and learning how this piece of history was preserved. We really enjoyed our visit and there is no charge thanks to the genorsity of the owners.

The grinding of grains has been an important industry and this site was an active site from the early 1700's until 1977. They still provide demonstrations of the process. Both stone millstones and metal rollers are on display. Place is full of old machinery and the guides are very willing to share knowledge. Open Mon-Sat 10AM-4PM and there is no... More

This old mill is actually well worth a visit as it's absolutly free of charge, you can't even tip them! The visit at the mill was rather interesting, but the visit to the old house nextdoor was kind of boring. It was just an old house. But as the people/guides were very friendly and comitted, it's worth a visit.

Very interesting place to visit. Both the mill and the house take you back in time and reflect how life was many years ago. Visited here after a day at Hershey Park and my preteen grandsons found both interesting, More families should visit places like these, where the kids actually learn something. Tour guides are very friendly & well-spoken and... More

Very nice tour given by two very knowledgeable tour guides. We enjoyed the mill and home tour. The movie was short, but very interesting. Even gave us three free post cards. We were pleasantly surprised that the tour was free. Recommend taking this tour.

I never miss an opportunity to at least drive by the Roller Mills and always stop in whenever I have time. The mill, house, and barn are all in beautiful condition and the tour guides are so friendly and knowledgeable. As part of the tour, the guide fires up the rollers and grinds cornmeal. Be prepared to spend a good... More

We had a hard time finding the mill since I don't believe it's anywhere close to Ronks. Glad we didn't give up as this a great step back in history plus it's free. Short video and then excellent tour of the mill and the house. Mill wasn't working when we were there as a water shortage in area. I believe... More

The opportunity to enter and familiarise yourself with this centuries old mill is one well worth taking during your visit to Amish country. While the original owner was not of the Amish, he traded with them and was respectful of their ways, and his ingenious use of water to power and pull the mill is a lesson in original thought,...

We have driven by Mascot Mills many times, but never stopped. Today, we decided to take the tour. So glad we did. What an amazing place! First, you enter the mill. There is a short film you can watch with an interview with the original family member. The mill is so well preserved. It is actually still in use. Next,... More
