The Readyville Mill is re-opening for breakfast and good, old fashioned stone ground grits, cornmeal, flour and steel cut oats on Saturday, September 7, 2013. Johnny B and the Balladeers will be providing their good old timey music, and the pancakes and quiche and biscuits and sausage gravy will be hot, fresh, and old timey delicious! The Mill will open for breakfast at 9:00 a.m., and will serve until 1:00 p.m., so whether you’re an early riser or a late sleeper, you can have your breakfast at the historic Readyville Mill again beginning September 7, 2013.
The Readyville Mill, has been closed for the summer to allow for a much needed rest for the staff of the Mill. Pat Blankenship, a former attorney in Murfreesboro and an avid supporter of the arts, has come on board as the full time Mill Manager, and she and the Brady’s have a vision for the Mill that includes more meals, more events, and more community arts opportunities. And because so many of you have requested it, there will be some new, delicious breakfast foods added to the already hearty menu (yes, scrambled eggs!). Reservations are strongly encouraged, and can be made by calling 615-563-MILL.
The Readyville Mill is a 150-year old working grist mill, and is on the National Registry of Historic Sites. It sits on six idyllic acres along the Stones River, and serves not only as an eatery and a mill, but also serves as an event venue for special occasions such as weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, company retreats, class reunions, birthday parties, seminars, workshops, and club luncheons. To inquire about hosting an event at the Mill, please contact Pat Blankenship at 615-563-MILL. Hosting an event at The Readyville Mill includes full use of the facility, both inside and out, and catering is available as well.
The Readyville Mill’s clients and customers turn into the old gravel driveway to find their childhoods, to teach their children and grandchildren how things used to be done, and to taste the old tastes of freshly ground cornmeal and grits. The Mill provides for them a journey back to a simpler day, nostalgia, history, and a respite from the hectic work a day world. Walk by the river, sit on the porch, have a freshly ground whole wheat pancake or biscuit with gravy. Have an extra cup of coffee. Stay as long as you like. Smile at the sun shining on your face and the cool breeze blowing across the back of your neck and the children clambering over the old mill truck. The Readyville Mill is open and ready to say “Come on in!” as of Saturday, September 7, 2013!
