Built in 1802, historic Clifton Mill sits on the cliffs of the Little Miami River gorge in Greene County. The mill and its restaurant are open daily year round. From the day after Thanksgiving to January 1st, the mill has one of the country's best holiday displays featuring 3.5 million lights, a huge animated miniature village, a 3,500 piece Santa collection & more. There is a spectacular synchronized lights and music show that plays out hourly on the mill's historic covered bridge.
The Millrace Restaurant at Clifton Mill offers the atmosphere of yesteryear. Sit back and relax to the gentle sounds of the old mill wheel and the soft rhythm of the water gently cascading over the falls. After you have enjoyed the great food and spectacular view, browse through our charming Gift Shop. The shop is decorated with antiques and oddities from a bygone era.
On display inside Clifton Mill is a collection of over 300 flour bags from mills around the country. Many of these bags are over 100 years old and are beautiful, colorful examples of some of America's first advertising practices.
