The Mills of Lancaster County

May 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In the early days of Lancaster County water power was a significant source of energy. The many streams in the area were host to mills that ground grain, sawed lumber and machined iron. Some of these mills lasted into the 20th century. Their refuse and remains have a story to tell and their uncovered history has been examined by Dr. Dorothy Merritts of F&M’s Earth and Environment Department. Prof. Merritts will tell of her many interesting and unusual discoveries, mostly found in mud.
