The Historic House Museum was reopened in early 2017 after being closed for a two year renovation. The face lift included new plaster, paint, electrical, a rebuilding of our chimneys, a new bathroom, new exhibits, and much much more. Come in to see the newly renovated house on Tuesdays through Saturdays 10am - 4pm, and on Sundays 1pm - 4pm. The house is closed on Mondays. Everyday you can hike some of our gorgeous trails that cover around 9 miles that traverse a large variety of terrains and difficulty levels. Trail maps are available at our two covered kiosks and the front desk of the museum during visitor hours.
While on site visit our live owls located next to the Historic House museum. Our three different species of owls will leave you in awe. In addition to the owls we have a variety of other educational birds as well. Behind our offices in our Cottage House lives our resident Blue Jay, Conrad as well as our Broad Winged Hawk. Keep an open for our educational chickens which will make periodic visits between now and next year as well.
With a wide array of Meadows, woods, and water, Mill Grove is an ideal local destination for birding with a great chance to see a wide array of different species. Do not forget your binoculars, your listening ears, and sunscreen! We have a bird blind located on our Bird Habitat trail just off the paved Audubon Loop Trail (not far from the the copper mine tower ruins) for those who wish to be extra sneaky watching the birds in the adjoining meadow.
Please enjoy Mill Grove!
