Since TTMAC received the Chapman – Beverley Mill property shortly after the 1998 arson that nearly destroyed the structure, the campaign has striven to both preserve the Mill and make it accessible to the public. Our first order of business was to stabilize the Mill structure (Look out for a blog post on stabilization techniques soon!). With stabilization completed in the mid-2000’s, we looked to discover more about the site through archaeology. Now, with our archaeological study underway, we seek to share all that we’ve learnt with the public!
Beginning in the spring or summer of 2015, TTMAC will start improving the Mill site — adding walking paths, informational signage and hopefully increasing hours of access. The image that accompanies this post is an early rendering of TTMAC’s master plan for the site. The plan has changed slightly since this drawing was created, but we hope you’ll take a minute to examine it. It gives a great sneak peak at some of the developments you can expect to see when you visit the Mill in the coming months. And once you’ve taken a look, let us know what you think!

Happy 2015 everyone!
