Grist Mill - Free Flour Ground Before Your Eyes!

One of the best volunteer-run stops ever. Currently open Saturday afternoons; we stopped on Memorial Day Saturday and left with cornmeal, red and white flour, recipes, and they had tasty bread samples that were delicious! Flumes, turbine and toilet alcoves to delight. Give John a hard time about his ex-wife for some extra laughs.

Beautiful little gem in the middle of nowhere. Times are posted regarding availability of volunteers for tours and questions.

...especially questions about that free sack of flour!

Grist Mill Souvenir "Free" Bag 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.

We generally avoid listing or visiting grist mills, but when a "free" bag of flour is involved...stand aside!
