Gristmill demonstrations can be found at the working gristmill next to the park Visitor Center. The 1930s gas-powered gristmill grinds corn into corn meal, which was the staple food of the local residents. Guests get their hands dirty by experiencing the difficulty of the manual gristmill. 1920s farm tools are also on display. Inside the Visitor Center you’ll find exhibits with information on everything Breaks Interstate. Maps, trail guides, photographs, and wildlife specimens can be found here.
