Washington Grist Mill

411 Layton Rd, Perryopolis, PA 15473

Website

Reconstructed in 1999, the Grist Mill is a close replica to the original that was owned by George Washington.  Washington had the mill constructed in 1774-1776 on land that he owned as an investment.  Although he didn’t run the day to day operations (he was busy being the first president), he frequented the site and inspected it.  The Perryopolis Historical Society offers tours of the Mill, as well as a Distillery, “Bake Shop” and other attractions on the site.
