While the Mill is not currently operational (see note below), visitors on guided tours will get a rare opportunity to see the process of building a new waterwheel and waterbox, as well as observe archaeological studies of the floor of the Mill.
Visitors must be on a guided tour to go inside the Grist Mill.
Guided tours are $6 per person (children under 3 years of ages admitted free).
Where’s the Water?
The Route 322 road construction project deposited large amounts of silt in Concord Creek upstream from the Park. Between 2017 & 2019, this siltation moved downstream, stopping the operation of the 315-year-old Mill & halting the 60-year tradition of trout fishing in the ponds.
We are in the process of planning & permitting for the silt to be removed in 2023 so that we can reopen the Millrace & refill the Ponds. This is a massive & complex project — we thank you for your patience as we continue to work toward remediation.
