Pioneer Isaac Love created an iron forge here in 1820 and son, William, built a tub mill 10 years later. This water-powered gristmill was one of the hubs of activity in town, producing meals, flours and even the town’s electricity. Today, it is one of the most photographed mills in the country, and it still grinds the flour and meal used every day in the kitchens of Old Mill Restaurant and Old Mill Pottery House Café & Grille. Pick some up at Old Mill General Store, enjoy a delicious meal at either restaurant, or stroll the shops on the Old Mill Square for area crafts and goodies.
