Experience a piece of history at Dollywood's Grist Mill. Built in 1982, it was the first fully operating grist mill built in the state of Tennessee in more than 100 years. Workers constructed the grist mill exactly as it would have been more than a century ago when folks in the Smoky Mountains relied on the giant water wheel to grind corn and wheat.
Today, the aroma of our famous fresh-baked cinnamon bread lures you in, but it’s the wide variety of gourmet mixes, cookbooks and vast selection of cookie cutters that makes you linger. Stone-ground corn meal prepared on the spot is available for purchase too. If you’re hungry, check and see what fresh-baked confections are available in the baker’s case, including homemade cookies and, of course, the mouth-watering cinnamon bread!
