Visitor Tips and News About Grist Mill "Free" Bag of Flour
Beautiful little gem in the middle of nowhere. Times are posted regarding availability of volunteers for tours and questions.[Crisa, 02/25/2016]
...especially questions about that free sack of flour!
Water-powered mill dating to 1876 and still in operation [the oldest commercial building in WA state still serving its original purpose]; the site is now owned by the state of Washington and has volunteers on hand to give tours and grind wheat into flour before your very eyes.
Every visitor is offered a free bag of freshly-ground flour - however - there is a donation box and while not required, well, you get the gist of the grist.[Daniel Langdon Jones, 06/10/2010]
We generally avoid listing or visiting grist mills, but when a "free" bag of flour is involved.... stand aside!
