Celebrate traditions from times past at the Fall Mill Festival. Take a tour of Montgomery County's only water-powered gristmill and experience many hands-on, family-friendly activities including a blacksmith demonstration (1-1:30p), tin smithing, corn husk dolls, and games!


This Sunday we will also be joined by our friends at the Upper Gwynedd Environmental Advisory Committee (A.E.C.), who will be sharing information on the projects they have been working on in the area.


The Evans-Mumbower Mill is located on the Wissahickon Creek at Swedesford and Township Line Roads in North Wales, PA. Click here to see a map.


We are happy to offer this program at no cost to participants, but if you are able, a $10 suggested donation would be greatly appreciated. Wissahickon Trails is a local, community-supported nonprofit. Our budget depends entirely on the generosity of our supporters—individuals, foundations, and corporations.  Donate online today.
