About a year ago, TTMAC launched its first Adopt a Stone campaign. The campaign enables lovers of the Mill to show their support in a unique way – by ‘adopting’ one of the Mill’s many stones. Adopters make a donation and in return they can choose a stone to commemorate a special event or dedicate to a loved one.
The kickoff event went splendidly and while stones have been selling all year long, there are still plenty of great ones to choose from. So, if you missed our event last year, now is your chance to pick your perfect stone!
Adopt a Stone Day at Chapman – Beverley Mill
10AM – 5PM
Support the Mill by joining us at the historic site (17504 Beverley Mill Drive Broad Run, VA 20137) to adopt one (or more!) of the structure’s over 3,000 stones.
Stones on the Mill’s southern wall – the wall facing Interstate 66 – will be available for adoption and prices will range from just $25 to $1,000 or more depending on size and position. Donors will receive an adoption certificate noting the unique reference number of their stone and a map showing the position of that stone on the Mill.
The first $700 of adoptions will be used to help conserve the milling machinery that was pulled from the wreckage of the Mill following an arson in 1998. All additional proceeds benefit the continued preservation and interpretation of the Chapman – Beverley Mill Historic Site.
We look forward to seeing you on April 23!
