Known primarily for the grist milling system that caught the eyes of both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, Oliver Evans was a mind so ingenuitive that his mark upon our vast country is undeniable. And what grist mill would be complete without its water system? Join us for the lock down on this fascinating and innovative system!

Light refreshment will be provided. Admission to this presentation is free, though we graciously and gratefully accept donations.
