Saturday, September 14, 2013, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
In commemoration of the 151st Anniversary of the Battle of Thoroughfare Gap, the Turn The Mill Around Campaign is sponsoring a special day of tours, presentations and onsite family events at the Chapman/ Beverley Mill Historic Site in Prince William and Fauquier Counties, including a HUGE CIVIL WAR BOOK SALE in the Mill Store.
The Turn The Mill Around Campaign, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization needs your help in our ongoing efforts to preserve this National Register of Historic Places site. Our current project is the restoration of the early 20th century Mill Store. We have received a generous donation of $3000 from the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation to help with the restoration of the windows, doors, interior ceiling and stonework. Our financial goal to complete the project is $15,000. Once completed the Mill Store will serve as tour headquarters, museum and gift shop.
Chapman/ Beverley Mill is open on weekends only this Fall until construction is underway for our new system of walkways, interpretive signs and a new entrance gate targeted for early 2014. For now, the gate opens at 9:00 a.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is Free.
