The Old Mill Inn completed the painstaking restoration of our original 19th-century cupola, complete with a new copper weather vane, as part of our ongoing renovation project to restore and maintain many of the Mill’s original features. We completed this particular project in late October, and restored many of the cupola’s original features including wide high curving hip roof, trim work, replacement of circular shutters that had been removed in the 70s, tapered base with horizontal face boards, and a new copper Victorian weather vane. The Old Mill is part of the historically significant Mill District and is on the National Register of Historic Places, having been at various times a grist mill, gun shop, spark plug factory, and in its most recent incarnation, 12-room inn on the Mill River and a town landmark.
