The Water Mill was first mentioned in 1586, making it the oldest mentioned building of the whole estate. Most likely, the mill was there already earlier, as natural conditions were favorable and the manor needed the mill. In addition to flour of different coarseness, the mill produced groats and it had all the necessary machinery for cleaning and processing grain. The present stone building is from the middle of the 19th century and played an important role in the economical activities of Vihula Manor processing the grain of the manor.
The Water Mill itself has been completely restored and is now the best preserved functioning Water Mill in Estonia.
