Backus Mill Reenactment
It doesn't seem to be set up as a functioning mill would have been, but there is a lot of old flour processing materials. The water wheel and old dam still work as well.
I found this old knitting needle mounted on a display. It is made of wood and in really good condition, although there is no age range listed, so it might not be horribly old. It is pretty neat though.
The British army was out in full force and after a dasterdly murder of the Red Coat leader during the parlay, the American army was turned away and the town was saved.
It was a fun afternoon.
