Help us Put a New Spin on this Old Mill

Project Update - June 2017 - The major restoration and preservation project we kicked off last summer is in high gear. Your donations make a difference and thanks to your generosity we?ve raised almost half of the funds for this restoration project in less than 12 months.

Funds have come in from around the country and Denmark from individuals, businesses, organizations, foundations, grants and events. We still need to raise additional money to finish the project and hope you will consider making a donation.
