Explore the  four stories of Rock Creek's most successful gristmill and learn why Peirce Mill was cutting-edge for its time. Also discover the every day figures of speech that come to us from milling. Stop by the mill between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for demonstrations. Please note that this is the last time Peirce Mill will be operating in 2013. The mill will close for the season on November 15th.
