Guided Tours of the
Union Mills Homestead and Grist Mill

Preserving the authentic atmosphere of Marylandís rural home life
for more than 200 years



School field trips and bus groups are welcome and encouraged at the Homestead, reservations required. We will be pleased to tailor our tour to particular topics if so desired. The tours typically run one hour but can be longer or shorter dependant on the interest of the visitors. Questions are encouraged.

The Shriver Grist Mill at Union Mills is a working grist mill museum which produces stone ground whole wheat flour, corn meal, and other products. Included in a typical tour are: an explanation of equipment in the mill, history of the mill and industrial complex, and a demonstration of flour production.

In the Shriver Homestead you will take a trip back in time with trained docents. This 23 room (12 open for tours) house, filled with original artifacts, appears as if the family is gone for the day. This very unique house museum is one to be seen by adults and children.
