After a recent inspection, our insurance company recommends temporarily closing the Historic Center at Wolcott Mill Metropark until the structure is inspected by a structural engineer.
There may be some programming changes during this temporary closing, so we encourage you to visit our website calendar for up to date information. The grounds, bathrooms, trails and Farm Center within Wolcott Mill Metropark remain open as usual and we invite you out to experience it for yourself! We know Heritage Holidays is a visitor favorite, and we are already making plans for an exciting event again this year.
We will provide regular updates. Follow us on Facebook to stay in the know!
At the Historic Center, visit one of the few historic grist and feed mills remaining today, and a barn museum to discover the importance of old mills and the history of American barns, complete with antique farming equipment and a restored Model T dump truck. The mill, pond and two adjacent barns located on the property are listed on the National Register of Historic Places through the National Park Service, Department of Interior.
Hike through beautiful wooded trails and open fields at the Historic Center and Camp Rotary. If you are looking for equestrian trails, bring your horse to ride along 10-miles of trails that meander through woods, meadows and along the Clinton River. Indoor and outdoor camping may be booked by organized groups year-round at Camp Rotary.
Wolcott Mill Metropark provides a unique backdrop for private or corporate events. The bucolic grounds and historic buildings are ideal for weddings, company picnics, family reunions and parties during regular park hours or in the evening.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all in-person educational programming (school, scout, homeschool, etc) is suspended until further notice. We are putting together virtual field trips and other online experiences for the 2020-21 school year so please follow the Metroparks Facebook page for upcoming announcements.
