This box was places in Falls Mill for our son who got married and this is where we came to take the wedding photos. It is an old mill factory built in 1873. It is still in operation today as a grist mill. The 32 foot waterwheel is one of the largest in the country and quite a sight to see. There is a country store and a bed & breakfast there. They are open year round Mon- Sat. 9:00 - 4:00, but they are closed on Wednesday. Also, they are closed on Thanksgiving Day and December 24th thru January 1st. There is an admission s -$3.00
Senior Citizens- $2.00 Children under 14- $1.00

From the top of the hill where the trail begins outside of the mill, count down 4 double posts from the top on the railing. Once there, face the wall. Take a small step to your left. Approximately half way down the wall you will find what you are looking for.

Update to Clues:
We have been told that our letterbox has been moved. It seems that a Copperhead has moved into the area where the box was planted.
When we planted this box we had the permission from the owners of the mill. They were the ones who saw the snake in the area. Being exceptional hosts to our letterbox they have moved the box inside the mill. You will have to ask for the Falls Mill box.
It is nice to find others that care for letterboxes even though they are not boxers.
Even better when you make friends of letterboxers who go out of their way to help others.

This update is due to Mowizliz and Teepsman.

Thank You for your help in finding what we thought was another lost box.
