WHAT'S HAPPENING!

WELCOME TO THE MILL MUSEUM! . . .

BIENVENIDOS AL MUSEO DEL MOLINO!

We hope you enjoy navigating this website.  We have history for everyone from kids to academics.  We have teaching tools and educational videos.  And we invite new members to actively participate in what we do. 

This museum is the result of a grassroot effort to preserve local history and put it in the perspective of modern times.  We offer home grown food for thought.  Please, come to our table.

The Museum is in the process of reopening following COVID.  In July, we opened for self-guided tours on Fridays from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. We are also conducting outdoor tours on many Saturdays and Sundays. We will reopen with our normal hours — Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays — in August. For details, click on the box to the right of this page labeled “Click HERE for our COVID OPEN or CLOSED LIST”.

 

If you need to deliver anything such as donated items, please e-mail us, describe what you have, and leave a phone number for us to make an appointment.

Our staff will reply as soon as they can.

All upcoming events are planned with Covid Safety protocols in mind.  Masks are required at all times inside the Museum.  We request anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated yet wait for future events after they’ve had their shots and waited the mandatory quarantine time.

We are SLOWLY OPENING UP  for tours but that doesn’t stop history . . .
