The Old Town Mill originally built in 1650 by John Winthrop Jr., the founder of New London and later the Governor of Connecticut. Listed on the National Historic Register, the Mill is one of the oldest industrial sites in Connecticut. On September 6, 1781, General Benedict Arnold burned the mill down during his raid on New London. The mill was rebuilt soon after on the original site. The grist mill will be open for tours and the showing of a video on mill operations.
The grounds of the Old Town Mil, 8 Mill Street, New London, CT 06320 are open year round until sunset. The mill is also available to groups by special appointment. Contact Judi Cox, 860-447-5243 for more information on the mill.
