|Facility:||Water Mill Museum Grist Mill|
|Description:||In colonial America, mills powered by water or wind were the most advanced form of power. They were used to grind grain, saw wood, full cloth, tan hides, weave fabric and make paper. Water mills or windmills appeared in every colonial settlement.
The story of this water mill begins in 1640 when a group of English colonists came to Southampton.
The mill was built in 1644 and has been used for many purposes throughout its history.
In 1968 a project to restore the mill as a museum began and this historic grist mill was grinding grain once again in time for the 1976 bicentennial.
