Owner description: 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.

A small mill where you can buy real corn meal ground on site. It's a wonderful bit of history for children to see how the early settlers made their dietary staple.

We enjoyed a tour of this property which is in a lovely garden setting. The watermill was still working and there is a nice cafe attached. Its a lovely spot to take children and watch the ducks.

The mill is fascinating. Not only can you see the whole mill operating, but you can understand the minute details with the scale model on hand. You can also sift corn and evening grind it with a pestle and mortar if you want! The staff are super knowledgeable and I look forward to going back again!

This was a nice add-on to our itinerary. It's a small mill, but very effective in showing how corn was ground then, and still being ground now. They only grind about 200 pounds of corn a week and on only two days. If you are in town a few days, it would be worth visiting during the days they grind corn. We missed this opportunity.

The outside of the mill was beautiful on the water set within the autumn trees. However, the mill itself was not very interesting. It's a very short tour about how the mill works and that's it. They said they actually grind corn a couple days a week but they weren't on the day we went. Maybe if you got to see the mill in action it might be better but otherwise I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it.
