Welcome to The Mill Museum! / Bienvenidos al Museo Molino!

Welcome to the Mill Museum

Video by Shane Goodrich


Next Saturday, May 27th, is Mill of the Month!

We will meet at 4 p.m. at the Old Town Grist Mill (Winthrop Mill) in New London built in 1650! We have a tour at 4 p.m. sharp.

The Mill is located at 8 Mill Street and is located under the Bridge.
Then, we will travel across the Gold Star Memorial Bridge to Groton for a short visit at the Avery Copp House,
a wonderful Victorian House Museum with a gracious staff.
Then down the street to Fort Griswold where the remaining courageous continentals surrendered to the British.
Memorial Day is a fine time to remember our brave patriots who died on that hillside so we might be FREE.
Some of the group will end up supporting a local eatery. (optional) I hope to see you Saturday!

As always you can just show up but an RSVP would be helpful for light refreshments at the Avery Copp.

RSVP to Bev @:       bevishistory@yahoo.com  or    860-423-1878
