A Visitor's Guide

Touring the Wayside Inn Historic Site

The Redstone Schoolhouse and Wayside Inn Grist Mill are staffed by trained interpreters and are available for touring on a seasonal basis. Click here for a Property Map. Be sure to check the days and hours of operation for each building before your visit. The Wayside Inn is a self-guided touring building, available 7-days, 9am to 8pm, featuring period-style room settings, and cabinet displays of historic items.

Schools and similar-sized groups are encouraged to visit our buildings and grounds. Because of viewing space retrictions, we recommend groups over 18 persons to separate into smaller groups and to take turns rotating through the buildings for guided presentations in the Mill and/or School.

The Mill is open to visitors April through November, Wednesday through Sunday from 9am to 5pm, closed from 11am to 12pm for lunch daily. Staffed by a trained interpreter, grinding demonstrations are held mostly on weekends when visitor traffic is highest.

The Schoolhouse is open mid May through mid October, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11:30am to 5pm.

Note: Our guided presentations are designed for audiences grade 3 and older. Parents and guardians of younger children are still encouraged to explore the property at their own pace.
