Look, Honey! A Grist Mill

How excited are these people to have a water powered gristmill?? No more hand grinding grain.

This is Philipsburg Manor, an 18th-century working farm with a water powered gristmill. It is located in Sleepy Hollow, New York and according to the signage at the mill, "Philipsburg Manor explores the powerful stories of commerce and slavery in the colonial North."

Can't wait to go back this summer when they open for tours!
