The Old Grist Mill Museum at Atkinson is an expression of Ray’s love of milling and a reflection of how things were done when he arrived in 1958, and before. Come visit the museum and get a tour from The Cornbread Man himself. Ray Wheeler built this museum with the hope that people come to understand and appreciate his love of the mill. Come see his working demonstration of water-powered corn milling and the other related items Ray has built and collected over the years.

The mill is just minutes from I-95 and US Hwy 70 Business. Tours are available during mill hours Monday through Friday; calling ahead to the office before you arrive is best. Fishing is allowed along the banks of the Little River at the mill pond.
