    Name: Rock Mill Weekend
    Date: October 14, 2018
    Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:

    Tour this stunning 1824 grist mill that stands 90 feet above the gorge of Hocking River Falls.  It was one of a dozen mills in the area powered by the Hocking River.  The mill was in operation until about 1905.  It then sat, quiet, and fell into disrepair.  It was restored to working order in 2017 when it roared to life and milled grain again for the first time in over 100 years!

    Also on site is the iconic Rock Mill Covered Bridge, constructed in 1901. It may be the smallest bridge in the county but it is the most well-known.  Be sure to bring your camera!
