May 18 Milling in Early America Lecture at the Dunwoody auditorium. Hear Tony Shahan speak on the importance of mills in the daily life of early America. In the time before electric and steam power, water was the fuel that powered the industry of the 18th & 19th centuries – the same gallon of water that turned the water wheel on Darby Creek in Newtown, then powered the next ones in Radnor, Marple, Haverford, Springfield and Darby. Saw mills, grist mills, textile mills, tilt and blade mills – all were the backbone of the local economies. Tony Shahan has his own operating 18th century mill – he is the director of the Newlin Grist Mill in Glen Mills. He graduated with a BA in History from College of the Ozarks and an MA in History and Museum Studies from the University of Delaware. He has been working as a museum professional for 28 years, including jobs with the National Park Service, Delaware State Museums, Greenbank Mills and Philips Farm, the Newlin Grist Mill, and as a private consultant throughout the region. Over 20 years of his experience has been working in historic mills. All programs are held at the Dunwoody Village auditorium, 3500 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA 19073 beginning at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free. Refreshments are served. Come out and meet your history minded neighbors and learn and be entertained!
