  • Historic Yates Mill County Park 4620 Lake Wheeler Road Raleigh, NC, 27603 United States (map)

Yates Mill is an operable grain mill established around 1756. The equipment in the mill is original, left after the Lea family ceased milling operations in the mid-1950s. A visit to this historic treasure provides an opportunity to learn about an integral aspect of rural life in the early days of settlement in Wake County.
