SPOOM 2018 Conference Oct. 17-20

Join Hanford Mills & SPOOM and Explore the Power of the Past

Hanford Mills Museum (HMM) is the host site for the 2018 Society for the Preservation of Old Mills (SPOOM) conference.  Time will be allocated for attendees to spend plenty of time exploring HMM’s water- and steam-powered site. The Mill complex includes a sawmill, gristmill, and woodworking shops all in one building. An operating mill site since 1846, for most of its commercial life Hanford Mills was owned and operated by the family of David Josiah Hanford, who purchased the mill in 1860. Your visit will feature demonstrations of historic mill machinery and the 1926 Fitz overshot waterwheel.

For questions on the Conference please contact Kajsa Harley, Education and Curatorial Initiatives Manager at Hanford Mills Museum, at 607.278.5744 or via email.

"The map is fantastic. My wife and I visited several mills last week in MO and it was a bit of an adventure to find them and some we never did. The map will be a huge help!"
