    Springfield Mills, a historic feed and flour mill situated along the Wissahickon Creek, has been carefully restored and made operational once again by a dedicated group of volunteers.

    Visit this 19th century mill to watch one-ton millstones grind corn kernels, and observe 160 year old machinery that includes the refurbished tail gate, turbine vane controls and cob crusher, transport and sift the ground corn to produce meal. This cornmeal is being sifted, bagged and baked into muffins for visitors to sample. Kids and adults will enjoy grinding their own meal on the pedal powered mill.

    Come and explore revolutionary technology, local history and a beautiful setting.
