Fall in Love with Maggie Valley

A half-mile north of the Oconaluftee Visitor Center is Mingus Mill. Built in 1886, this historic grist mill uses a water-powered turbine instead of a water wheel to power all of the machinery in the building. Located at its original site, Mingus Mill stands as a tribute to the test of time. Hours: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM daily mid-March through mid-November. Also, open Thanksgiving weekend.

 

Highlights:

• Water flows down a millrace to the mill.

• A working cast iron turbine.

• A miller demonstrates the process of grinding corn into cornmeal.

• Cornmeal and other mill-related items are available for purchase at the mill.
