Built by Dr. Edward Turner Bale in 1846 and fed from a dam above the mill on Mill Creek.There is a nice little wooded glen above the mill with a short trail to the mill and a few picnic tables.
The rear of the mill as approached from the parking lot on a trail through oak savannah.
Now the main focus of Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park on Highway 29 between Calistoga and St. Helena.
Photo submitted by Eric Gerhardt on 01/01/2009 of Bales Mill operating. The photo was taken as a timed exposure with the wheel turning slowly with a large flow of water. Bale Mill continues to process six excellent flours and meals in 2008.
