Adams Grist Mill Museum, Mill Street, Bellows Falls, VT

The local historical society supervises collections housed in the 1831 stone and wood frame grist mill building, located on Mill Street, at the southern end of the village square. The structure houses much of its original equipment, including all the grain elevators and storage bins. Implements from the Vermont Farm Machinery Company are also stored in the building, as well as household articles, antique signs, and hand tools used by various craftsmen that were there when the business closed in the early 1960s, and the original sleigh for the mill, as well as the family sleigh, all belonging to the Adams family. The society's collection of archival materials of Bellows Falls memorabilia is temporarily housed in the Rockingham Free Public Library. The society's collection of Hetty Green furnishings is on exhibit in the Library Museum.
