Volunteer mill interpreters at Historic Yates Mill County Park lead 30-minutes tours on Saturday afternoons and one-hour tours on Sunday afternoons from March through November. These tours share the fascinating history of Yates Mill, as well as the rich heritage of Piedmont North Carolina with the visiting public. Historians have referred to Historic Yates Mill as a "historic jewel" and "the queen of all mills in North Carolina."

Our tour program could not function without our volunteers, who provide more than 2,000 hours of tour guiding and outreach every year! We do everything in our power to make this a fun opportunity for learning and community engagement. New volunteers receive thorough training and enjoy field trips as well as other learning opportunities throughout the year. Park staff members are also on hand to work one-on-one with volunteers so that everyone feels confident and has a good time!
