“The Jenny Grist Mill is a long standing Mill where sailors were thawed after a Christmas night many decades ago. The men, delivering rum to Plymouth froze to death after a N’east storm. They were told to put the rum in their boots to keep them warm. Most drank the rum & died being frozen to the ship. Wanna know more? Take their tour & don’t forget to ask questions. ”

“History made real. "I felt like I was actually back in the settlement time. The actors played their roles so well. They were cooking and eating and feeding the animals. It was a fully functioning village. The lessons learned were invaluable. I wish every school child could visit because it comes to life and history is made fun."”
