All drives start at the Bel Air parking lot unless otherwise noted
On Thursday, April 13 we will drive up to St. Helena to visit the Bale Grist Mill Historic park. It’s about a 2-hour drive.
Our private one-hour tour will start at 1:00 pm. The mill, built in 1846 by Dr. Edward Turner Bale, received the property in a land grant from the Mexican government. This mill, a technical innovation, provided a special quality for making various kinds of bread. Included as part of the tour is a demonstration by a miller who will use the grist mill to convert grain to flours. There is a per-person fee for the tour.
After the tour we will have lunch at a near-by restaurant (TBD).
