Rock Creek Park is huge, so it’s worth setting aside an entire afternoon to visit the historic stone mill located on the grounds. Built in 1829, the mill ground corn, wheat and rye using moving water as its power source. Today, if you visit when “Run of the Mill” programs are held on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month between April and October (from 11am to 2pm), you’ll get to witness the mill in action and visit a historic orchard, make crafts such as cornhusk dolls and baskets, and play with traditional toys and games.
