Abbott’s Mill is one of the few remaining water-powered mills in the state. Milling was once a major part of the agricultural economy in Delaware. Anywhere that it was possible, a mill existed because grains such as wheat and corn were the chief crops. It has survived in excellent condition as a late nineteenth to an early-twentieth-century mill. There is a Nature Center behind the mill buildings, nature trails also run through the undeveloped land to the rear of the property and workshops, exhibits, walking trails, courses, and other programs are run daily.
