Shoaff's Mill Tours - Remake Learning Days

Shoaff's Mill is a 19th century operational grist mill that is open for tours Saturdays & Sundays from May through the Apple Festival in October, *staff permitting*. Originally built around 1840 to serve the Juniata iron furnace community, this mill provided the surrounding region with cornmeal, flour, and various animal feeds. Come and see the 32' Fitz waterwheel turn as it has for over 100 years and check out a variety of milling tools and machinery.

Shoaff's Mill will be offering a special program for Remake Learning Days on May 12th and 19th. Visitors can tour the mill as usual, and participants of RLD can experience the science and physics of a 32 foot water wheel! If you are attending for Remake Learning Days, please register by clicking the green Register button. If you are just visiting for the tour, there's no need to register!

The mill will also be open during Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day, and is available for private tours. For closures, changes in time, or special events like corn grinding demonstrations, check our Facebook page or contact the park office. For more history at Little Buffalo, check out the historic Blue Ball Tavern, open on Sundays during the summer from 1-4pm. Contact the park office for details & closures - 717-567-9255.
