Over a hundred visitors participated in fall events at the Mill, including a neighborhood walk, as part of The Last Green Valley's series of Walktober events, and a skilled oxen demonstration by the Hebert family of East Woodstock, CT. The Heberts brought two pairs of well-trained oxen and a logging sled to the mill, showing visitors how oxen were used to haul lumber, and how logging sleds were loaded and unloaded. Many thanks to the Hebert family for supporting the Mill in this way.
