Upcoming Mill Events

Over the next couple months there will be plenty of ways to support the Mill.  We hope to see you at some of these fun upcoming events!

P. Buckley Moss Print Signing
November 14
10AM – 4PM

In September, P. Buckley Moss, a renowned Virginia-based artist who takes her inspiration largely from images of the Shenandoah Valley, announced the completion of three new works depicting historic places throughout Fauquier County.  The three sites Ms. Moss selected are the Warrenton Rail Depot, the Waterloo Bridge and the Chapman – Beverley Mill.

On November 14, the artist will hold a print signing of her newly-released pieces. The signing will take place at Framecraft (64 Main St. Warrenton, VA).  Prints will be available at $55 each and there will be a raffle to win a beautifully framed print of the Mill.  All raffle proceeds will benefit the continued conservation and interpretation of the historic Mill site!
