Family Fun Day~~~June 6th~~~

 Join Special Blessings on Saturday, June 6th, for a mid-morning tour of Historic Yates Mill...

***About Historic Yates Mill:***
The centerpiece of the 174-acre park is Historic Yates Mill, which is the last operable water-powered gristmill in Wake County (more than 70 water mills once existed in the area). The Mill and the property surrounding it were purchased in 1963 by NC State University. The Mill was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and was restored to working order through a grassroots community effort by 2005.

____________________________________


We'll meet at a location (to be announced) and then head to the Mill to tour this beautiful piece of history.
