Cupola Renovation – 2014

Old Mill Inn - View from cupola
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.

“The Boss” joins the Old Mill Inn Staff

For the past six years The Old Mill Inn has relied on others to help plow and clear snow from our parking lot, sometimes keeping guests longer than they wanted to stay. This year we have a new addition to the team, “The Boss”!

Our Pond!

It is the end of the season for our frogs and soon they will be hibernating for the winter. Our young frog caretaker has been watching and studying them all summer and has provided us with a post summer reflection.

Old Mill Inn Frog Pond

Julie relaxing in the pond.

“Julie is a sweet leopard frog. Dave is a big green frog and loves to eat dragonflies. Frosty is a frog who has nice green skin. Last spring Julie and Dave had a baby frog named Brownie. Julie sometimes brings baby frogs to my pond. the baby frogs names are Jumper, Cleo and Shiny. There are three toads one is a baby and too is a huge one. The toads names are Toady, Tiny and Hopper.”

We hope to see them again, safe and happy, next spring.
