HISTORIC MILL TOURS
Guided tours of the historic mill building resume in March and continue through the end of November, with costumed corn-grinding demonstrations taking place on the third weekend of each month. For the tour schedule, view the mill tour webpage.

FREE TOURS FOR TEACHERS

During the months of July and August, we are offering teachers a chance to come take a public mill tour for FREE. We encourage all teachers (who have a current school ID badge) to come and explore how our interactive, staff-led, standards-based field trips fully support the goals they have for their students.

PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE PARK
As of January 2015, the park has a new photo permit process.
For details, view the park photography web pageIf you're planning to come out for some family photography, please be courteous to other park visitors. Keep trails and boardwalks clear and observe all posted safety rules.
