The historic Bear’s Mill in Greenville:  Built in 1849 and on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975, Bear’s Mill is an authentic example of a stone-grinding flourmill of its time. Cornmeal, whole wheat flour and rye flour are still ground with the French buhr stones powered by water from the Greenville Creek. Visitors can take a free self-guided tour of the 4 story structure and enjoy a walk in the scenic woods surrounding the mill. On the first floor is the Mill Store & Gallery where mill flours, gourmet sundries, giftware and art by regional artists are available for purchase. Proceeds from sales and all donations go to the Friends of Bear’s Mill, the nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a rich cultural experience and community-oriented events including educational tours, demonstrations and nature walks, while preserving the Mill’s historical significance and natural beauty.
