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.

Enjoyed the grist mill as a member. However after going I find the individual price crazy overpriced. Friday and Saturday are probably the better days to go as that is when they are operating

This was a nice little place to visit. It is a real, active working mill and you can purchase the product that is made there. plenty of places to park while there and really close to the town (within walking distance).

It is very interesting to see how corn was ground. The staff at the mill explain the process as it is actually being ground. It's a beautiful setting on the town pond. It only takes 15 minutes to see & worth the visit.

You get to tour and actual grist mill, talk to the people and learn about this , then you can actually buy true stone ground cornmeal to bring home and bake corn bread.
