Kymulga Grist Mill and Park

7346 Grist Mill Road
256-378-7436


The Kymulga Grist Mill was built around 1860. Timber for its construction came from the nearby forest, and machinery to operate it was made in a foundry in North Carolina. Powered by water turbines, the mill was capable of grinding both wheat and corn.The Kymulga Grist Mill & Park contains a grist mill and a covered bridge, both built around 1860. Guided tours of the mill are available and the park also includes opportunities for camping, fishing, canoeing and hiking along two miles of nature trails.

The park is primarily a wooded area, with walking trails and campsites near the creek. Over twenty-five varieties of hardwood trees and approximately fifteen ground plants located along the trails have been identified and marked by professional foresters. Included among the trees are the largest sugarberry tree in Alabama and the largest cluster of white oak trees east of the Mississippi River. Another unique feature of the park is the large stand of Paw Paw trees. Native Americans used the fuit of the Paw Paw tree for food and medicine. The park is a protected area, with an abundance of food, water, and natural cover for wildlife. Among the animals found there are deer, squirrels, raccoons, and opposums. Turkey, quail, ducks, and a variety of songbirds are evident. The creek contains several types of fish and helps provide a habitat for frogs and turtles.
