Grist Mill

I read about this lovely New Englang gem online a fews back. In scenic Sudbury, the Wayside Grist Mill was built under the direction of former property owner Henry Ford in the 1920s.
The mill first ground its first "grist" on Thanksgiving day, 1929. The mill is water-powered and is still in operation, producing the corn meal and wheat flour that is used right down the road in Longfellow's Wayside Inn's baked goods.
I could not get over how picture perfect this place is. So peaceful, so gorgeous. There is something about the old stone buildings that makes me fall in love with this region more and more!

Oh wow, Tamar! How beautiful is that old mill. There is an old mill in the town where I grew up that was a popular spot for walking that I used to frequent with a book and a blanket. It was very peaceful to sit there by the old stone building and enjoy the sound of the stream running by. Thanks for sharing this beauty!

Oh WOW! And it's still operational! That is so cool. We have a mill not far from here in a county we haven't toured yet, but I'm pretty sure it's just for show now. I love this!

What a delightful place! We spent a day at the Henry Ford outdoor museum in Detroit, with similar vintage buildings. You would love that, too!
