About Mingus Mill
Mingus Mill is located a half-mile north of the Oconaluftee Visitor Center in Cherokee, NC. This historic gristmill was built in 1886 and stands at its original location. Instead of using a water wheel, this mill uses a cast-iron turbine powered by the water to grind the corn into cornmeal which is for sale at the mill.
Mingus Mill is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day from mid-March through Mid-November (open Thanksgiving weekend).
