I did not have much time in my schedule, so was pleased to find the Mill was a convenient stop in Laconia. There are actually several historic mill buildings in a cluster on the river with a parking lot adjacent.
I went in and was surprised to find the volunteer attendant sitting busily at her desk with the museum exhibits all in the dark. We managed to get the lights on. I did not have a lot of time, so focused on the room with all the different sock machines. They are fascinating. Apparently they run them occasionally. That would be neat to watch. The big wheels out side were also very interesting. I figured it was a fifteen minute or less museum but I could have lingered an hour. Who knew? I did buy some Vermont socks which while expensive are very good. We will see if they are as tough as they claim. I passed on the " made in the museum" socks as looking uncomfortable but they would be nice to hang on the mantle at Christmas.
The grounds are really beautiful. Worth the stop even if the museum is closed.
