Grist mill

The Stony Brook Grist Mill

The Stony Brook Grist Mill is Long Island’s most fully operational grist mill. To learn more about its mechanical history, please visit our mill on Sundays April through October between 1 and 4pm for tours guided by one of millers or interpreters.

For over 300 hundred years, the mill you see before you has been a hub of the community – But what existed before the mill, how did the mill come to be, and what in the world is grist?
