This is one of my favorite places. I just Love all the  beauty surrounding the mill.  It just take’s my breath away. We went in the fall when all the leaves were changes, so it was an added bonus.   The mill itself  is very interesting, but not a whole lot to see inside the mill.  It is a working mill and the history alone is very interesting.  It is well worth your time to walk around the mill and up to the picnic area.   When you approach the mill, they have a covered bridge you drive through. You will find that the stream runs right along side the mill, and when we visited we saw many salmon jumping. They have a very nice picnic area too, so bring your lunch.

 

Travel time to the mill is only about an hour from Vancouver and is Located in Woodland, Washington. The Cedar Creek Grist Mill is a real working grain grinding mill that still maintains the original structure. It grinds with stones and is powered by water. It is a national Historic Landmark. George Woodham and his two sons built the mill back in 1876. Families from all over Clark County would bring grain to the mill to be ground into flour or used for livestock feed.

The Mill is now a non-profit organization run by the Friends of the Cedar Creek Grist Mill.

This is a fun outting for the whole family.  Bring your camera. The surrounding’s are so beautiful, that you will leave for  home feeling very rewarded.
