The Mill at Anselma Preservation and Educational Trust, Inc.
Experience America’s rich industrial and agricultural past as you step inside the Mill at Anselma. Every gear, tool and barrel tells a story of how Anselma’s millers and their families lived and worked over the centuries. You can almost hear the conversations between miller and farmer as they dropped off bushels of wheat to be milled into flour.
Today, the Mill at Anselma is a National Historic Landmark as a testament to early American industrial ingenuity. The Mill is an extraordinary example of a custom water-powered grist mill which milled flour for its local community. Its wooden power train is completely intact and functions as it did when the mill was first built c. 1747. It has operated during three centuries.
Today, the Mill at Anselma inspires people in creative ways to discover its authentic technology and importance to the community through tours, milling demonstrations and its stone ground flour. Flour-milling demonstrations feature hands-on family fun helping to sift freshly ground flour and exploring the power of the water wheel. Flour and corn meal can be purchased in the gift shop.
Admission is charged. The mill is open from April through the end of November. Call for hours of operation and the milling schedule.
