Mill To Reopen For Saturday Tours.

The Motor Mill will only be open for tours on Saturdays this season due to Covid 19. Visitors are asked to be courteous to other visitors and practice safety guidelines.  Due to the fact that many of our visitors and volunteers are in the at risk category we are also asking that masks be worn inside the mill to follow CDC safety guidelines and that visitors follow social distancing recommendations.  If you are taking a look around outside, however, a mask will not be necessary.
