Music at the Mill heralds historic restoration

Music at the Mill is coming to the Francis Grist Mill in Waynesville from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 10, celebrating the newly restored 124-year-old mill.  

It is the only grist mill of its type in Western North Carolina.

Balsam Range and Hill Country Band will entertain visitors with bluegrass favorites. The Frog Level Philharmonic will provide a blend of Dixieland and jazz.

The 1887 timber frame mill operated until 1976. The vast majority of the restoration labor was done by volunteers who contributed over 4,500 hours of their time with more than $56,000 of in-kind donations.

Tickets for the barbecue and an afternoon of music are $10 and are available at Elements Salon in Waynesville or by calling 828.456.6307.
