Description

Years have passed, but some things haven’t changed. The Old Mill’s system of shafts, belts, and pulleys still gets the job done and folks still love to gather around its giant water wheel that harnesses the power of the river. The Old Mill, which was built in 1830, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to grind grain daily on a giant, water-powered wheel.

When you come to The Old Mill, you can tour the working mill and shop at its adjacent Old Mill General Store as well as enjoy a delicious meal at either of two renowned restaurants – The Old Mill Restaurant and The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe & Grille. The Old Mill’s other unique shops provide delight for the whole family. At the Pigeon River Pottery you’ll discover one-of-a-kind handmade pottery made by our artisans. Stop by the Old Mill Creamery to chill with a homemade ice cream treat or home baked cookie; or take your sweet tooth to the Old Mill Candy Kitchen and watch our confectioners hand dip unique chocolates and caramel apples or make fresh taffy or fudge. The Sassafras, our women’s clothing, accessories, and gifts boutique is an experience the ladies (or smart men) won’t want to miss.

Across the street and next to The Old Mill stands a century-old barn that now houses the award-winning Old Forge Distillery. Our Old Mill heritage laid the foundation for the Old Forge; you can taste the historical culture of the area in the quality of our bourbon, gin vodka, and other spirits, too.

Beyond shopping and dining, you can observe and interact with artisans and skilled potters at the wheel, see candy and ice cream being made, and wander the riverbank or explore the floral gardens and water features. Seasonal events, such as Heritage Day and our annual cornhole tournament, offer a reason to return again and again.

We invite you to experience the spirit and heritage of the mountains and discover authentic Southern Hospitality in a tranquil riverside setting. Come enjoy great food, shopping and special events in a place that’s steeped in history and dedicated to preserving the traditions and crafts of East Tennessee’s pioneers.
