The centerpiece of the Hagood Mill Historic Site is the water-powered 1845 gristmill. It is one of the finest examples of nineteenth-century technology in the Upcountry and operates just as it has for the last century and a half. The mill will be running throughout the day. Hagood Mill cookbooks and a variety of other mill-related items are also available.

There will be lots of other things to see on August 21st as Hagood Mill hosts a variety of folklife and traditional arts demonstrations. We will be running the mill, so come purchase the freshest of the fresh of our grits, cornmeal, and specialty grains. There will be blacksmithing, chair-caning, moonshining, pottery, quilting, spinning, knitting, weaving, woodcarving, and metalsmithing demonstrations. We encourage visitors to ask questions of the artists, gain insight, and if you wish, spend a little money to secure a traditional arts treasure of your own.

We will have a quality artisan market in addition to our regular shopping in the Mill Mercantile, where we have an amazing selection of locally crafted souvenirs and personal care products, local history books, locally roasted coffee, and locally grown tea.
