What it is about…

The best millstones in the world come from the Marne Valley in Northern France.  French burrstone was even shipped across the ocean and installed in early American mills.

We'll be honoring this connection at Peirce Mill by casting our own miniature millstones from plaster and stone dust.  Families can also try grinding grain by hand with a quern---a smaller set of millstones. And they can watch Peirce Mill's 2400-pound millstones in action!
