The mill is part of the Mill Bridge Village Camp Resort and is open for guided tours. Today, the mill sports an external overshot wheel but that is not authentic. The covered bridge was removed in 2020 and is now located at Stone Gables Estate near Elizabethtown.

The mill is located at 100 S. Ronks Road, Ronks, PA.
