Ledyard Photo Friday - The Sawmill in Autumn

The Town of Ledyard owns the 11–acre Sawmill Park, which includes a water powered up-down saw, shingle mill, blacksmith shop, a gristmill, ice harvesting equipment, and other mill artifacts of the Industrial Revolution.  The mill museum is located in an 1860 restored building.  The up-down sawmill is usually operational from April-May and October-November. The mill volunteer group will have the mill open Saturdays 1:00-4:00 in October and November 2014. They are in the process of a major repair project to get the saw up and running soon but visit the mill this fall to talk to the volunteers about their repair project.. The park with two-acre pond is open year round. I never get tired of visiting with my camera there.

The saw mill  is administered by the Ledyard Historic District Commission. You will find lots of information  at
