County Commissioners Support Chester County’s Historic Mill at Anselma

Mill at Anselma check presentation

The Chester County Commissioners presented a check this week 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 materials for educational demonstrations as the County leads awareness of events at the Mill. The Commissioners urge both private and public-sector organizations to bring focus for people to recognize the great value of this asset, which has been operating since 1747.  

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 ranging from the 1700s to the mid-1900s.  

Mill demonstrations take place 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 2018 milling demonstration days and special events go to anselmamill.org.
