Looking for an authentic New England experience on a Saturday afternoon in the Spring or Fall? Visit Sawmill Park in Ledyard, CT and see an original 19th century water-powered up and down sawmill cutting local timber into lumber.

In addition to log sawing demonstrations, there is an operating blacksmith shop, shingle mill, gristmill, ice harvesting tools and the rest of Sawmill Park and picnic area looking over the mill pond.  Please visit us soon!

Group Visits.  Schools or other groups can contact the Ledyard Historic District Commission (860-464-8740) to arrange interpretive group visits during hours the mill is not normally open. Or contact the mill volunteers at
