Historic Savage Mill Bicentennial, Part 2

While my daughter worked on looms (see yesterpost), the toddler and I wandered around Historic Savage Mill checking out other things going on during the bicentennial celebration. We saw the Colonial Troubadours playing lutes and whistles and such.

I saw a hammered dulcimer performer but didn't get to take a picture since the toddler was on the move.

A bit of the mill in action as a shopping area

Books with a Past had an author event. Local author Gene Barr talked about A Civil War Captain and His Lady. Again, the toddler was more interested in walking around than listening to someone talk. Oh well...

The book!

Rams Head Tavern was offering a free pint glass to all customers who bought a Fordam and Dominion draft beer. I tried the Dominion Oak Barrel Stout, which was quite delightful. Mommy had the toddler, so I could enjoy it more slowly than otherwise.

With bicentennial theme

A new plaque was unveiled at one of the entrances. We didn't go to the unveiling ceremony because of (again) the low attention span of some family members. The plaque is quite handsome, though.

A detailed history of the mill is available here. We were happy to celebrate 200 years of Savage Mill goodness!
