I have enjoyed this location for years. There are historic buildings, quiet spots. Man made waterfalls. This is a good spot for photo sessions. Nice to get away from it all for a little while.

Tour the mill, and the foundry and then walk along the creek listing the kids play on the rocks and splash about. a wonderful summer escape day. I think you can take a picnic and bring a frisbee to toss.

The Grist Mill has trails throughout that make wonderful hikes or walks. Everything is very well marked, and although close to Route 1, it is very peaceful.
