This is definitely a good stop to make. The nicest gentleman spent time telling us all about the history of the mill. There is a lot more to the mill than one would have imagined and that this was all done hundreds of years ago!

It was great to see this working cornmill.

Congratulations to Sandwich on having saved it, and making it available to visitors.

The guides were friendly and enthusiastic and gave a comprehensive explanation and demonstration as to how the mill operated. We even got to taste the raw produce.

My wife and I popped in for a quick peek while strolling through town. The admission rate was very reasonable and I was curious to see what the mill looked like on the inside. Expecting a self-guided tour we were surprised to encounter the two tour guides inside. They were fantastic though! Very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to them explain the history of early American mills. We would highly recommend stopping in for a peek.

This was a great site to visit with our 5 & 6 year old boys. It is not expensive, it is a quick visit so they did not get bored, it is interesting for both adults and kids.
