Mills Need Friends Too!

Courtesy Jonathan Hill

Calling all history lovers, preservationists, admirers of unique architecture, archaeologists, old mill enthusiasts, educators and anyone who loves scenic, outdoor spaces!

We’re looking for Friends of the Mill!

In our continuing efforts to find new ways to spread the word about the Mill and its history, Turn the Mill Around Campaign is seeking out individuals interested in forming a ‘Friends of the Mill’ organization. The Friends would be independently incorporated and could take an active role in numerous aspects of Mill site operations including but in no way limited to community outreach, site maintenance, fundraising, coordinating with school and youth groups to offer tours and activities, and promoting the site to photographers, filmographers and other artists.

Interested in finding out more?  The first meeting to discuss this new group will take place Saturday, July 23 at 1PM at the Mill office (4250 Loudoun Ave. The Plains, VA 20198).  Contact Frances Allshouse at for details.
