Join the RIHS on Wednesday, July 17th, for a member-exclusive behind-the-scenes of Kenyon's Grist Mill. Kenyon's is the oldest manufacturing business in Rhode Island and the second oldest continuously operating business in the state. Operating out of an 1886 grist mill, Kenyon's still uses the original granite millstones quarried from Westerly, Rhode Island. Discover the story of the mill's founding and how the business changed over the centuries, eventually becoming a household name.
