An historic Cape Cod house museum

The Old Mill

The 1858 grist mill building sits on the foundation of the mill built by Benjamin Nye in 1669. The mill building has undergone extensive restoration using authentic timber framing methods. 

The Mill has been converted into a museum that chronicles the mill’s history during its more than 200 years in operation.
