The Plimoth Plantation Museum, which operates the Mayflower II, as well as a recreation of the 1627 Plimoth Plantation and a Wampanoag homesite, has announced it is opening another exhibit in Plymouth at the recreation of the 1636 Grist Mill, located on Town Brook.  

Visitors will see the operational water wheel, and watch a miller grinding corn (which can be purchased).
