This symbol indicates that the specified area is fully compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG).
As you enter the site grounds, the historic site office will be up a drive on the right. A handicap parking space has been provided adjacent to a boardwalk leading to the entrance. Inside, a video tour of the site and its history is provided.
An easily accessible picnic shelter, located at the end of the day-use parking lot, provides a handicap parking space, an extended-end table and a pedestal grill. Two accessible vault toilets are on the east side of the parking lot near this shelter. This area also includes an accessible playground with Kiddie Mulch surfacing.
A group picnic site, located across the low-water bridge, offers a view of the mill and is accessible upon gaining permission to drive across the stream. This site provides a long table with an extended end and a pedestal grill.
A loose gravel path leads from the day-use parking lot to the mill. A 4-inch-high concrete water barrier must be crossed to access the path. As you pass through the information kiosk, the path becomes steeper with a 9.8% slope for a distance of 35 feet. Benches are placed along the path for resting.
Another accessible vault toilet sits just below the mill and can be driven to with permission. Parking is on gravel. The gravel path ends at the mill after climbing a varying slope of 4% to 7.3%.
With permission, visitors may drive to the mill where a 10-foot-long wooden ramp with a 10.3% slope is provided for access to the porch. The first floor of the mill is accessible, where you can view the actual machinery and components used.
