get to the site.
The mill, built circa 1908, still grinds corn using water power. Suberís Corn Mill is just one of a handful of grist mills still operating in South Carolina. Located in Greer on Suberís Mill Road, just a short drive from downtown Greenville, Suberís rests on the slope of a hardwoods-covered hill in the Upcountry. Stop by and see the mill at work and buy a bag of freshly ground corn meal.
