Friends of the Wolf Creek Grist Mill Group - A wonderful, amazing organization!


Around 1998, my family & I were camping at Mohican State Park when we discovered the Wolf Creek Grist Mill there. It had been neglected for years, no windows or doors, leaking roof, unsafe floors & a walk bridge that could barely support itself. Upon inquiring as to what was going to be done with the historic mill, I was informed that the Parks did not have the funding to make any repairs and it was slated for demolition. Being a historic restoration contractor my whole life, I felt there had to be a way to save this wonderful building. That’s when the idea was born to form a non-profit, Friends of the Mill Group.

In the beginning, there was some skepticism as whether such a huge undertaking could be successful, but that skepticism has long since disappeared. Together with community leaders, the all-volunteer friends group was formed in 2000. The group leases the mill and about 50 acres from Mohican State Park.



Today the Wolf Creek Grist Mill has been restored to operating condition & the Fromme Cabin that was moved to the property several years ago is completed and is our new welcome center. An 1880 saw mill and 7 other historic log cabins have been donated & moved to the site for restoration. Our overall plan is the completion of an historic village on the property, in order to preserve a vanishing part of our heritage for future generations to enjoy & learn from.

I am very proud to be able to work with such an amazing group of dedicated people! - Mark J. Smith, Founder & President, Norwalk, Ohio
