Visit Autrey Mill
Summerour House

Located on 46 acres of ravine forest and historic past, this nature preserve's two miles of walking trails wind past a scenic creek with rocky shoals, spring seeps, mature trees, wildflowers, native plants, and a variety of animal life.

A Heritage Village has been created with four buildings original to the site and four landmark structures moved from nearby properties. This village and its related exhibit pieces provide an understanding of this area's proud rural heritage from the mid 1800s to the mid 1900s.

Our Visitor Center houses animal exhibits of turtles, frogs, and snakes, and dioramas of native mammals and birds.

Grounds are open every day from 8am to dusk.

The Visitor Center is open Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm
closed on major holidays

There is no charge for entrance to the grounds.

A reminder of Nature Preserve rules

~ Dogs must be on a leash at all times.
~ No bikes or motorized vehicles are allowed on the nature trails.
~ Stay on the trails to avoid damage to the preserve's habitats.
~ Keep voices low so all can enjoy the Preserve's peaceful setting.

SPOOKY MILL a great success!

Thanks to all who attended Jr. Spooky Mill and the two evening Spooky Mill events.

A special thanks to staff, board members, and all the volunteers who made it a success!

Help Autrey Mill meets its funding needs.

Our nonprofit keeps operating costs to a minimum by leveraging the efforts and skills of many volunteers. Even so, income from program fees and facility rentals only cover about 60% of our annual operating costs. The remainder must come from individuals and businesses investing in Autrey Mill's future..

Here are a couple ways you can add your support to keep Autrey Mill operating, vibrant, and achieving its mission to create a destination and educational resource that inspires exploration, appreciation, and preservation of the natural environment and local history.


Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center is now participating in the KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM

Read how to register so Autrey Mill benefits from your patronage at Kroger supermarkets.
