Commissioners Support Historic Mill at Anselma

Anselma Mill 5

Chester County Commissioners Michelle Kichline, Kathi Cozzone and Terence Farrell presented a check for $1,000 recently to representatives from The Mill at Anselma in Chester Springs.  The funds are part of the County’s annual appropriations to organizations and non-profits, and will be used for the purchase of materials for educational demonstrations as the County leads awareness of events at the Mill. 

Commissioner Terence Farrell said, “The Mill at Anselma is a tremendous historical resource in Chester County that practically demonstrates elements of our county’s industrial history in a beautiful natural setting.  We are pleased to support the Mill’s operations and urge both private and public sector organizations to recognize and support the great value of this asset, which has been operating since 1747.”

Mill demonstrations take place from April through December on the second Saturday of each month.  Demonstration days include talks by the miller who shows how the mill parts work together to grind the grain, hands-on activities for children including sifting through the milled flour, and 22 acres of grounds to explore.

December’s events include an Old Time Music Group meeting on Friday, December 13th at 5:00 p.m., and Santa comes to the Mill on Saturday, December 14th

The Mill at Anselma is one of Chester County’s National Historic Landmarks and is the most complete known example of a custom grain mill in the United States.  A working example of Chester County’s industrial heritage, the Mill has retained its original colonial-era power train as well as multiple layers of industrial equipment ranging from the 1700s to the mid-1900s.
