Oliver Evans of Newport, Delaware

On May 10th from 7-9pm at Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm, join us as we get to the grist of this amazing and remarkable man, born not far from our historic mill. Known primarily for the grist milling system that caught the eyes of both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, Oliver Evans was a mind so ingenuitive that his mark upon our country is undeniable. And what grist mill would be complete without its water system? Join us for the lock down on this fascinating and innovative system!

Light refreshment will be provided.

Admission to this presentation is free, though we graciously and gratefully accept donations.
