Mishler Weaving Mill

The Mishler Weaving Mill is an operating textile weaving mill using original mechanical looms, the oldest of which dates from 1895. Antique mechanical looms are used to weave dishcloths, place mats, and table runners. Hand looms are used to weave rag rugs, rag place mats, and dish towels.  One of our looms is an 1860 rocker beater barn beam loom.

Visit with member volunteers. Items are sold in our Mishler Mill Gift Shop. The Mill is air-conditioned and handicap-accessible.

All buildings are open from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. on these special Sundays in 2012:
