The Mill & Lands
For three generations, from 1865 until 1977, William Ressler (1819-1892) and his descendants owned and operated the Mascot Mills. Each generation of Resslers made the mill their livelihood, and the village of Mascot their home.
Today, skilled craftsmen take pride in maintaining the equipment at peak efficiency as the mill continues to grind corn daily for our guests. Knowledgeable guides delight in making milling a living occupation and are happy to answer your questions and provide enthralling anecdotes about the mill’s rich history.
You are invited to walk along the shaded banks of Mill Creek and enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the tables provided by the Township near the dam that creates a peaceful bird sanctuary and popular spot for local anglers. Watch as the nearby head race sends water cascading through the gates to the turbines under the mill that drive the historic equipment located inside. Explore the inner workings of the fully operational Mascot Roller Mills and experience Lancaster County history at its finest.
