Nice Way to Look Back at History
Aug 22, 2013 by: Beachy722Maryland from Maryland
The Union Mills Homestead is really a interesting place to visit. You could easily visit on your way to Gettysburg. It doesn't take long to tour. The working mill is great to see, and you can buy various flours, corn meal and grits to take home and use to bake or have homemade grits. The house is interesting too. Also, they have several nice events throughout the year.

Stop by a working historic mill and buy a bag of fresh ground flour. Tour of family home full of great artifacts is worth the $5 admission.
Nice Picnic Location

We have enjoyed this location for family picnics. There are tables available and the grounds are fun to explore. There is also a field for ball playing. Bathroom facilities are available. We have gone even when the facilities are closed.

We went when the mill was operating and found the tour very interesting. The grounds are also very nice. We also went when there was a Civil War encampment. This is a great place to visit if you are interested in history. You should make sure it is open for tours or special events in order to really enjoy it.
Nice with many events

I grew up in the area of the Homestead. There are several nice fields, a nice fishing pond, old buildings, a pavilion to rent, and many nice events held. It is a nice place and a very historic place. There are many different events held through out the year as well.
