Access to Peirce Mill is limited
Due to flooding access to Peirce Mill is limited to the main level. National Park Service staff will continue to be available to answer questions about the mill during normal operating hours. The lower level will be closed until cleaned.

The phrase “Keeping your nose to the grindstone” is a milling term. When in operation, the miller would open a small door above the millstones and smell the grains. If smoke or a burning odor was detected, the stones were too close to each other.
