Open for tours

Beck's Mill is now open for tours by appointment.

The historic gristmill in Washington County is seven miles southwest of Salem. It was built in 1808, rebuilt in 1864 after a fire, one year after John Hunt Morgan demanded ransom for every Washington County mill to be spared from burning. After setting idle for more than 50 years the little grist mill is now churning out a product that once made it famous.

To schedule a tour call Judy at 812-896-3447 after 5 p.m. Tours are scheduled when staffing is available. There is no entry fee, but donations are gladly accepted.

Beck's Mill is located at 4433 S. Becks Mill Rd. For more information visit the website at
