Washington Grist Mill Park

Washington Grist Mill Park showcases industry of earlier times in America.

The centerpiece of this seven acre park is the newly reconstructed Washington Grist Mill. George Washington owned considerable land in this area. He commisioned the construction of the grist mill which was built by Colonel Crawford. Construction began in 1774, but was delayed until 1776 because of the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. The foundation was restored using the original stone.

Other attractions in the park include:

The Distillery - Built in early 1790's, rebuilt with original stones. Operational.

The Bake Shop - Built circa 1856. Beehive type oven, operational.

Searight Fulling Mill - Built circa 1814 by William Searight. Machinery on site, only free standing fulling mill in USA.

For an informative glimpse or the past, this is a worthwhile stop.
