Ledyard Sawmill news - March 31

After a long winter, the Ledyard sawmill volunteer group is once again working on maintenance and repairs to the mill and water turbine. We hope to complete repairs in order to open for the Spring 2014 season.

The mill is open to visitors Saturday afternoons in April and May 2014.

The historic Ledyard Up-Down Sawmill is the original water-powered sash sawmill located on the original site on Lee’s Brook in Ledyard, Connecticut.  Restored to operating condition in the 1970s and now staffed by volunteers, the mill is open to the public for sawing demonstrations on Saturday afternoons in the spring and fall.  There is no admission charge.

The mill buildings and property are owned by the town of Ledyard, CT and administered by the Ledyard Historic District Commission.  Ledyardsawmill.org was created by and is maintained by volunteers for the purposes of education and publicizing the Ledyard Up-Down sawmill and historic sawmill technology; this website is neither endorsed by nor officially affiliated with the town of Ledyard, Connecticut.
