Yates Mill is the last operating, water-powered gristmill in NC's capital county. The 18th century mill was restored, and the 174-acre park developed, through a partnership among the County of Wake, Yates Mill Associates, and NC State University. The park is open 361 days per year, from 8 am to sunset. The visitor center with its 2,200 square feet of exhibit space is open 8:30 am to 5 pm. The historic mill is open for guided tours Mar-Nov each year for public tours on weekends (fee: $3-5) and also by appointment on weekdays for organized groups.
Quaint local park with several loops for walking with paths intermittent between paved & natural trail, encircling a small lake. The near end of the lake includes a historic watermill & its accompanying dam, both of which can be reached easily and provide good photo opportunities.
