Lanterman's Mill & Covered Bridge
Visitors to northeast Ohio won't want to miss this historic gem that is part of Mill Creek MetroParks in Youngstown.
One of Mahoning County's most historic landmarks, Lanterman's Mill was built in 1845-46 by German Lanterman and Samuel Kimberly. Restored in 1982-1985, this community treasure represents one of the many pioneer industries developed along Mill Creek and operates today as it did in the 1800s, grinding corn, wheat, and buckwheat.
Visit Lanterman's Mill and step into the past. Observe the pioneer ingenuity involved in the early production of meal and flour, smell the sweet aroma of freshly ground grains, and feel the rumbling vibrations of the massive stones as the various grains are ground. Browse the gift shop located in the Mill to find unique items and charming wares made by local artisans. Our stone-ground cornmeal, buckwheat, and whole wheat flour are preservative-free and can be purchased in the gift shop and at local participating stores. (Call 330-740-7107 for information regarding our stone-ground flours and meal.)
Facilites at this area include:
• Observation deck overlooking Lanterman's Falls

The nearby East Gorge Walk and West Gorge Trail offer a dramatic peek into the area's geologic history. Listed in the Mid-America Walking Atlas, the award-winning Gorge Trail is a breathtakingly beautiful two-mile loop along Mill Creek. The trail consists of a boardwalk and is bordered on one side by the stream and on the other side by a massive wall of sandstone.
