The Compass Mill complex includes the 5,500+ square foot Mill, a 2 bedroom log cabin, and a two-room cottage, all on 1.2 acres along the Lititz Run Creek and Rothsville Road in Lititz. The original log Mill was built in 1756 by the Moravian Brethren, burned down in 1775, and was rebuilt by the Moravians in 1776 as you see it today. It is one of only 2 mills in Pennsylvania that had an interior wheel and is on the Pennsylvania registry of historic mills.

Does your vision involve a bucolic location with 7 romantic fireplaces, stone, exposed beams, and a babbling creak? Call to discover more about this rare beauty and to schedule a unique showing. This is a must-see!
