This quaint village is a cluster of restored historic homes and buildings surrounding Gardner Mill, a flour mill built by Scottish immigrant Archibald Gardner in 1877. Brass plaques tell the stories of each of the historic structures. The mill, which is on the National Historic Register, now houses a large store specializing in country furniture and gift items, as well as Archibald's Restaurant. Close to two dozen shops in the other historic buildings, connected by redbrick paths, sell a wide range of items, including art, crafts, clothing, candy, quilts, dolls, and home furnishings. The village also has a spa, a bakery, and a picturesque duck pond. Plan to spend at least an hour here.
