Boxley Valley Mill Tours
October 1, 2017 - October 31, 2017
Boxley Valley Mill Tours are offered by the National Park Service. This historic mill is open for self-guided tours every weekend.
Have you ever wanted to go inside a grist mill? What is a grist mill you ask? Learn the answer along with other interesting facts as you take a step back in time in Boxley Valley. From 1870 until the 1950s this grist mill was handed down from generation to generation and was an important component of the community. While a working mill the customers would have been Civil War Veterans, World War I and World War II Veterans. Now, in the 21st century, the grist mill is under a 50 year lease with the Gorgas Science Foundation in partnership with the National Park Service. Our nation is fortunate that the foundation is willing to take on the preservation of such a stately, historic building.
