New Season Begins

We dug out from the three feet of March snow, and our thoughts and actions are now focused on spring. In addition to our signature festivals, we will offer more Free Family Saturdays. In June, we will open the Learning Lab, a special place designed to give young children and their families a place to build, create and explore. We open May 17 with guided tours of the water- and steam-powered historic site offered Wednesdays through Sundays. Hanford Mills features a Fitz overshot waterwheel, restored water turbine, and historic woodworking machines.
