Whats Happening at the Old Mill Lately!

We have a rug loom on the second floor of the Old Mill and our volunteers wanted to know how it works to be able to demonstrate it to our visitors. 

Mary Minney from River Raisin National Battlefield Park in Monroe, MI. was nice enough to show them how it works!  They all had a good time enjoying the demonstration and trying their hand at the loom.
