Gurleyville Grist Mill

 10/09/2022 @ 1:00 pm

The only stone mill of its kind in Connecticut, the Grist Mill is built of several types of local rocks: garnetiferous schist, gneiss, granite, pegmatite and quartzite. Located beside the banks of the trout-laden Fenton River, the mill houses complete perfectly preserved equipment. Two sets of grinding stones are as they were when last used. Conveying devices, the silk bolter for flour sifting, shafts and huge gears are intact. Unusual in gristmills is the basement, where a huge water wheel once turned from water diverted under the building from the Fenton River. Sponsored by Joshua’s Trust, joshuastrust.org
