Connetquot River State Park Preserve offers nature and history. The buildings are closed right now but we hope you can visit soon to see the hatchery, and South Side Sportsmen's Club. In the meantime.... Step back into the 1700’s as we visit the William Nicoll Grist Mill virtually. Perched on the Main Pond, along the original South Country Road, the Mill’s unique horizontal tub wheels were used to mill local grains, corn and wheat. The newly restored Grist Mill will be open again soon so until then you can experience life as seen through the early settlers from your home.
