VISITING THE MILL SITE
We are closed during the winter. We have tours from Memorial day through Labor day on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. If you would like to stop by and look at the mill on the off season, please feel free to roam the grounds, but the mill will be locked for security. The mill and the Crooked River with the snow and ice at this time of year are very beautiful, and wonderful photo opportunities abound. Sorry, there are no activities at this time of year. In addition to our regular in-season hours, we host special tours and educational programs.
If you would like a private tour, please call 207-583-6455
Scribner’s Mill is usually open for the last tour of the season of the mill and homestead on Labor Day week-end.
Some highlights for the 2017 Labor Day weekend were hand hewing, two man use of the buck saw, and timber framing. On display was the newly restored Civil War Caisson that was adapted by the Scribner Brothers as a wagon to haul lumber and the big wheel log hauler. Tours of the mill included a demonstration of the 19 th century machinery to manufacture parts for dry (slack) barrels around 2:30. In the long shed demonstrations of the shingle mill took place around 3:00. Across the street, the 1849 Scribner Homestead was open for guided tours.
The mill site, which includes the barn, ice house, and blacksmith shop, holds a large collection of antique mill, household, and ice harvesting equipment.
