Dellinger's Grist Mill Reviews
An authentic working grist mill lovingly restored by a family member Jack Dellinger. Lovely setting next to Cane Creek. Open to the public but not every day. Hours posted on a sign in Bakersvillle... more »
We were there mid April and they were closed. There would be no place to park a small class c motor home, even if they were open. I'm sure I would have given a higher rating if they had been open... more »
Beautiful and historic mill! Jack Dellinger gave us detailed history of the mill and his very interesting life. He is the fourth generation Dellinger to operate the mill. Looking forward to another trip there with other family members.
Jack Dellinger was a wonderful host and the property is magnificent! His stories were a treat. Hard to imagine the mill has been in operation for 160 years!
