Allen’s Mill is an old grist mill acquired by the Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT) when it purchased Destruction Brook Woods in 2000. Did you know that this mill was in operation as early as 1711? Or that the millstones used for grinding corn, wheat, and rye weighed approximately two thousand pounds a piece?

Learn more about the historic Allen’s Mill at this special opening!

Note: Allen’s Mill is part of DNRT’s Destruction Brook Woods property, but is accessed via a separate parking area and not connected by trail to the rest of Destruction Brook Woods. Parking area is located on the north side of Slade’s Corner Road, approximately 4/10ths of a mile from Russell’s Mill Village.
