The Upper Mill Grist Mill
ON THE NATIONAL HISTORIC REGISTER
Through the glass walls of the Waterwheel Café Bakery & Bar, you can view a restored 19th century water-powered grist mill known as the Upper Mill Grist Mill, Milford PA. The Upper Mill is a 24 foot working waterwheel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Originally built in the early 1800’s, this example of American history is now in action open to the public. Watch water rush over the three-story high waterwheel, driving a series of shafts, gears, pulleys and belts that power the stones and grain milling equipment.
A self-guided tour enables you to understand this whole fascinating process – the grinding of grain by the power of falling water.
