More About Old Wye Mill

How We Got Here

The Old Wye Mill is located in the town of Wye Mills, on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It is the oldest continuously operated water-powered grist mill in the U.S. and the oldest commercial structure in continuous use in the State of Maryland. Founded in 1682, the Mill has a long and fascinating history and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. During the Revolutionary War, the Mill was called upon to provide flour for George Washington's troops.
