Through the glass walls of the Waterwheel Café and our bar, view a restored 19th century water-powered grist mill with its 24’ working waterwheel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally built in the early 1800's, this lively example of American history is now in action and its doors are open to the public. Water rushes 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.
Spend the day or weekend in picturesque Milford PA, just minutes from Grey Towers, the lovely Gifford Pinchot Estate operated by the U.S. Forest Service. With several local antique and specialty shops, horseback riding, hiking, beautiful waterfalls to explore, the natural beauty of the foothills of the Pocono Mountains make this a perfect weekend getaway.
