Stumbled upon this amazing structure that is tucked behind Dorney Park and set upon the creek as the original mill location. While the museum was not open until spring, we enjoyed walking around the lovely grounds and peeking inside the windows. Can't wait to come back for the tour! Everything looks authentic and well grounded in local history!

Stopped by here yesterday only to find out its just opened weekends during the summer. To our surprise the owner was there & gave us a tour. Cool experience & it's awesome to see people with so much pride in their past.

Great place for history buffs. Volunteers will actually turn on the mill in order to see how the pulleys & belts work. Gazebo & creek on property. Tour is free & just asks for donation.

My family and friends enjoyed visiting this historic gem. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the grounds are beautiful with well-kept plantings of flowers and trees. There's also a lovely gazebo in the park-like setting out back. The tour is free, so bring the family to give your children a taste of yesterday.

As part of Lehigh County’s park system, visitors can watch a water turbine and rolling equipment operated by water power supplied from a mill race in the same way as when... More
