Squire Boone's Grist Mill

Grist Mill

Built by Squire Boone in the early 1800s, the restored mill still grinds grain just as it did two centuries ago. The 18-foot mill wheel, powered by water flowing from the caverns, turns the 1,000-pound grinding stones. Watch as the miller demonstrates how corn is ground into cornmeal and grits.

Some of the mill’s original foundation stones, into which Squire Boone carved designs and verses, are on display in the mill. One stone bears this inscription: “My God my life hath much befriended, I’ll praise Him till my days are ended.”

Boone’s Mill is listed on the Indiana State Register of Historic Sites and Structures.
