Standing 90 ft. above the gorge of Hocking River Falls is Rock Mill, a restored 1824 gristmill. In 1905, it closed for business and fell into disrepair. After a decade-long restoration effort ending in 2017, it roared to life and milled grain again for the first time in over 100 years! Come see this amazing piece of history and enjoy its beautiful setting!
This event is weather permitting.
