Demo Days at the Thompson-Neely Grist Mill

Thompson Neely Mill


The Chapter is looking into a visit to a local mill operating the technology devised by our namesake, Oliver Evans. Also members might be interested in a visit to this farm and mill complex recently opened after restoration to a working mill by volunteers. Now the building will be able to function as a 19th century period-accurate grist mill, and tours will explore how the mill once fit into the farmstead.

Demonstration Days at the Grist Mill

See the newly restored Thompson-Neely Grist Mill in action during a live milling demonstration on Sunday, May 20, June 17, July 15, August 19, September 16 or October 21. Demonstrations will be held at noon, 1:30 PM and 3 PM.

During a demonstration, the park’s miller will use 19th century techniques and tools to demonstrate how the Grist Mill would have functioned as part of the Thompson-Neely Farmstead.

Admission is $7 per person and includes a guided tour of the Grist Mill and Thompson-Neely House and Farmstead. Visitors who have purchased a $15 multi-site tour on a Demo Day may attend a demonstration at no charge.

The mill is located across the street from the Thompson-Neely House and Farmstead, 1635 River Road, New Hope, PA.
