Bear's Mill


Bear's Mill is a water-powered gristmill that has been in continuous operation since its construction in 1849. Flour is still produced the old-fashioned way in the mill, using water from Greenville Creek to create power. Admission is free and a first-floor gift shop offers local crafts and sundries. Bear's Mill can be reached by taking US 36 east from Greenville, then turning right on Bear's Mill Road. Look for the mill on the right-hand side of the road after crossing Greenville Creek.
