Former owner (1961-1981) and master boxmaker Harland Savage brings the past alive as he reminisces on his working years with Whitney Frye, demonstrates early woodworking and carding machinery, and completes the 1 1/2 hour tour with a visit upstairs to the old mill print shop. Reservations are recommended.
