County Commissioners Support Chester County’s Historic Mill at Anselma

Anselma Mill check presentation 2

The Chester County Commissioners recently presented a check for $1,000 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 grain used for educational grinding demonstrations at the historic Mill.  

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 more than 250 years of Chester County’s industrial heritage, the Mill has retained its original colonial-era power train as well as multiple layers of industrial equipment raging from the 1700s to the mid 1900s.  

The first Mill demonstration day of the 2017 season was held on Saturday, April 8th and will continue on the second Saturday of each month, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. through to December.  Milling 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.  For further information, including opening hours and a schedule of all 2017 milling demonstration days and special events go to
