Marvelous Machines & Historic Buildings: Workshops at the Mills
“Marvelous Machines at the Mills” explores the six simple machines that influenced the development of machinery, manufacturing and industrial growth.
Learn how six tools work together in the milling process to make life easier, yesterday and today. Take a guided scavenger hunt inside the historic grist mill as you locate the many gears, levers, pulleys and other simple machines that helped get work done at the historic complex.
“Historic Architecture and Preservation" shows you how the architectural styles of houses and outbuildings, historic buildings, streetscapes, neighborhoods and special landmarks tell the unique story of a community. This is a 1½-hour program for adults.
Learn more about the history of your own neighborhood by looking at the architecture of the surrounding buildings. Find out how to “read” buildings while you explore the forms and materials of historic structures and uncover the history of historic preservation efforts.
The workshop also examines the form, materials and architectural styles found in our built environment and increases awareness of the historic and cultural resources throughout our state. Slides of our area''s diverse architecture will help teach you how to understand, appreciate and protect the stories of the buildings in your town.
Both programs are available for adults, and a modified workshop is available for home-schools, scouts, public school groups and other interested community groups by contacting the DRMS office.
Cost is $5.00 for Mill Society members and $25.00 for non-members. Handouts and light refreshments are provided.
