Plimoth Plantation to run mill

Plimoth Plantation, the living history museum of the Pilgrims, is taking over operation of the Jenney Grist Mill, a reproduction of the 17th-century mill that once ground corn into flour for the Pilgrims.

The reproduction mill was built on the Jenney mill’s original site on Plymouth’s Town Brook as a tourist attraction in 1970. The flowing water in the brook turns a pair of 2,500-pound stone wheels to grind the corn between them.
