Sawmill news  October 13 2014

The mill is open to the public for the fall 2014 season Saturdays 1:00-4:00.  Volunteers are still working to complete repairs/renovations - we're hoping we will test the saw in a few weeks.  (Pray for rain - the pond is very low!).  Tour the mill to talk to the volunteers and see 19th century sawmill technology.
