The Great Falls Historical Society is pleased to announce that the 2020 recipient for the Annual Tibbetts award is Mike Henry. Mike has served as the site administrator for the Colvin Run Mill for over 30 years. Through the years, Mike has worked tirelessly to restore the 200-year-old Mill for tourists and Great Falls residents. Mike has been in charge of many repairs and restoration projects from massive to small and he is always seeking more and more ways to keep the mill running smoothly. Because of Mike, visitors from near and far can enjoy a picnic on the grounds after taking a tour or hearing a lecture from Mr. Henry himself. His efforts have ensured that visitors to the Mill can witness the only working 19th-century water-powered mill in the Washington, D.C. area and be apart of the history of land once owned by George Washington.
A graduate of the University of Kentucky, Mike received his bachelor’s degree in history with a concentration on the Industrial Revolution. Shortly afterwards, he earned his MA at George Mason University with a concentration in Museum Studies. Mike currently lives in Leesburg with his wife, Patty, who he met when she volunteered at the Mill. In short, Mike and the Mill are a perfect fit.
Please join us in honoring Mike Henry on Tuesday, February 4th at 6:30pm at The Old Brogue in Great Falls. Visit the Great Falls Historical Society website to register, www.gfhs.org.
