Mills of Rochester Program Coming on March 5

Patrick McKay, Director of the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, will present a program entitled "The Mills of Rochester" at the next meeting of the Rochester Avon Historical Society on Thursday, March 5, 2009. Pat's illustrated program will cover more than 30 water-powered mills that once operated in our community, including those that ground grain, squeezed apples, processed wool and produced sugar. The program will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium of Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Olde Towne Road, Rochester, and is free and open to the public. Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about Rochester's pioneer industries. Everyone is invited!
