mill and bridge

Pretty cool place hope the can get the mill open again. It needs some structural support as well as financial support. Nice spot for a picnic.

I picked this place for a birthday adventure because something about it being the "oldest city in America" popped up on Facebook. They also said they had a covered bridge and were a park. Admission was $3 a piece and my son likes to take pictures so why not. There was not really a good place to park. We were... More

After going to Desoto Caverns stop here for a trip back in time. Definitely a stop to remember where we were and how we got where we are now. Gratitude and slowing down are important.

Beautiful old grist mill and covered bridge. Enjoyed a 'private' golf cart tour of one of the hiking trails which was a treat. Beautiful variety of trees and tasted paw paws for the first time. Am so glad they are saving the mill - a real treasure. We look forward to it running again one day but am glad that... More

My brother and I went here today. Lovely little Grist Mill and covered bridge. The caretaker gave us a tour and it explained so much to us. His knowledge was superb. Thank you for a delightful memorable visit. And it is by donation. Lots of walking trails

We saw the sign for the covered bridge and decided to check it out. It was like stepping back in time. I'm so glad we took the time to go see it!!

Great little place to visit but currently getting off the ground as an attraction. Good trails and the bridge has a lot of original wood on the track. You can feel the grooves in it, The staff was awesome about the history of the place and its a great little side stop on a trip but still being updated and... More

Really enjoyed the history lesson from the attendant, Mr. Austen... very knowledgable and friendly...i think that all of the schools should have a field day here for a detailed history lesson

You just do not see covered bridges and grist mills anymore. It is thrilling to see what life was like in the old days.
