Part of the Longfellow Wayside Inn, a National Historic Site, this is a replica of an early 1740s grist mill that is still used for grinding grains for use and sale at the Inn.

I don't know. The mill is only open part time. Call Longfellows Wayside Inn who manages the property. Their number is 978 443-1776. Bye,
