Where There’s a North Carolina Mill…
The Old Mill of Guilford and Lakeside Mills are just two of many mills around the state.
Old Mill of Guilford
Built in 1767, the Old Mill of Guilford in Oak Ridge is one of the oldest working gristmills in the country. The mill grinds corn, wheat and rice to make different varieties of flour and baking mixes. Run by miller Annie Laura Perdue and a staff of local volunteers, the mill sells products at the country market on the property and on its website. They also ship items to general stores and restaurants across the country. Its bestsellers are mixes for sweet potato muffins and apple-cinnamon pancakes.
