Recent Events at the Mill

The Cumberland County Historical Society, Newville Historical Society and Friends of Historic Heishman’s Mill teamed up to provide “Whiskey America at Heishman’s Mill”. A curated, historical whiskey tasting with Murray Small of Dills Tavern and North York Preservation Society’s Spirit of the Signers. Guests were given guided tours of the Heisman’s Mill while learning the deep history of mills in Cumberland County. Along with the tasting we were treated to fantastic food from House of Smoke, Bluegrass music with legends, Tom Mindte and Jerry McCoury and Friends. The day featured the unveiling of the plaque showing the Mill as registered on the National Historic Register.
