To kick off National Preservation Month “Old is the New Green,” the Friends of Bear’s Mill will be hosting their annual Spring Open House on Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. A recycled wool hooked rug demonstration by Angie Ditmer of Plain & Simple Cabin will begin on Sunday at 2 p.m.

The Mill Store is well-stocked for the season. Visitors will enjoy tastings of our new dip and smoothie mixes while browsing our scented lotions, garden soaps, kitchen gadgets and gourmet foods. These wonderful products as well as many other spring and summer items are here just in time for Mother’s Day!

In the Gallery will be wood sculptures by Klaus Otten and photography by Doug Taylor. The opening art reception for these two accomplished artists will be held Saturday night, May 1 from 6pm to 9pm. A fresh selection of soda fired pottery by the Bear’s Mill potters will also be available.

“Interesting new items are coming in daily,” stated Judy Stachler, retail associate. “And the public is welcome to come out to enjoy the delights of spring around the Mill property, including the colorful blossoms on our beautiful redbud trees and Japanese maples,” she explained.

The Friends of Bear’s Mill keep the Mill open to the public through donations and grants, an educational tour program, Mill Store & Gallery sales and several special events that generate interest in and visitation to the historic site.

Bear’s Mill is located at 6450 Arcanum-Bear’s Mill Road about 5 miles east of Greenville. For more information, contact Bear’s Mill at 937-548-5112 or on the web at
