"To feel the pulse of earth where man has trod, and for the future, keep the past."

Upcoming Event:

Please join us on Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 at the Great Falls Library for a special presentation by Mike Henry on the History of the Colvin Run Mill.

Have you ever wondered what you don’t hear on the tour of Colvin Run Mill? After researching, discovering, and collecting stories for years, Mike will share some of the best legends, lies, and lore of this engineering landmark. Some of these stories humorous; some are scandalous; a few may have some truth in them! 

Mike Henry has been involved with Colvin Run Mill for over 30 years. A graduate of the University of Kentucky, Mike received his Bachelor’s degree in history with a concentration on the Industrial Revolution. Shortly afterwards, Mike earned his MA at George Mason University with a concentration in Museum Studies. In short, Mike and the mill were a perfect fit.
