Back to the Grindstone….

…….see firsthand just what that old expression meant.   Located in just east of Greenville, Ohio, the flours & meals made here were produced by huge circular gristmill stones that ground the grain to the proper size. Hard work in those days!   Bear’s Mill, built in 1849, one of the last operating water powered mills in Ohio today, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places & is one of Darke County’s most popular landmarks. Treat yourself to the retail shop, featuring stone ground flours & meals, gourmet foods, gift items & homemade pottery. Walking tours take you through the Mill’s three upper floors to see all the milling machinery which still works!  Group tours need to call to schedule their visit.
