October 1 - 31: Fall at The Old Mill

It’s the perfect time of year to make your way to The Old Mill and the Great Smoky Mountains. The burst of Fall colors that surround us inspire us in so many ways! The Old Mill Square is decorated from pillar to post and the flavors of Fall can be found everywhere. The Old Mill Candy Kitchen is making Pumpkin Pie Fudge, you can sample ciders at the Old Mill Farmhouse Kitchen, and The Pottery House Café will have the best fall flavors in their daily specials. Come spend a day with us, browse all of our shops, including the Old Mill General Store, Pigeon River Pottery, and Sassafras to find that perfect memento of Fall in the Smokies, and enjoy a delicious meal, featuring grains from our historic 1830’s grist mill. There’s nothing like Fall at The Old Mill!
