The Art of the Mill


B. Payden Photography session at the Mill, 2012

Over the years the Mill has remained a popular setting for photo sessions, and we’re always amazed by the beauty and creativity that we see in the images captured there.  Just take a look at this 2012 shoot by B. Payden Photography for tons of artistic inspiration!

So, to encourage the continued use of the Mill for such artistic endeavors,  beginning July 1, 2015 TTMAC will be taking reservations for 2016 photo sessions.  Sessions will be available during weekdays at a rate of $50 for four hours of access or a full day (dawn to dusk) for $100.

Just because the Mill will soon be temporarily closed for improvements that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything to do there this summer.  Take a look at what we have planned!

Did you miss our Adopt a Stone Campaign kickoff last month?  Here’s another chance to pick a stone! Visit Sunday, June 28 between 10am and 5pm to choose and adopt one (or more) of the over 3,000 stones that make up the Mill’s southernmost wall.    Adoption prices start at just $25 per stone.  Interested in adopting more than one stone? Be sure to ask about families of stones!

Site Clean-Up

Want to lend a hand at the Mill?  We’re looking to organize a small crew to remove the vegetation growing in the stone fence on site.   The clean-up session planned for June 28 10am to Noon.  Contact Frances Allshouse ( for more information.
