Come and Visit Us
Part of the Blackstone Valley National Corridor, Hunts Mills is the site of the earliest mills on the Ten Mile River with natural falls and a Denil fish ladder. Our 1750 museum house is home of the Society and its collections and a variety of exhibits including Rumford Baking Powder, Hunt and Walker family heirlooms. The kitchen herb and perennial gardens are within a Master Gardener site.
The Hunt House Museum is open to the public from 1:00 to 3:30PM on the second Sunday every month except for January and February. Admission is FREE. Donations appreciated!
