HC Speaking Series: Dan Campbell

Sunday, November 19, 2017

The Historical Commission presents architect Dan Campbell for presentation about the many small specialty mills (grist mills, saw mills, paper mills, and powder mills) that were common around East Brandywine Township.

Dan Campbell’s passion is on small specialty mills – grist mills, saw mills, paper mills, powder mills and maybe just a few more mills you never knew existed. You’ll be in for a big surprise to find out just how many mills operated in East Brandywine!

Dan is a registered architect with over thirty years of experience in architecture and historic preservation and will present a slide show, out-lining techniques used in finding and documenting historic mills. He is also Board Secretary of the nationwide society for the Preservation of Old Mills and President of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter.

Many of you are familiar with the Bondsville Mill and the work that has been done to restore that location, but this is an opportunity to smaller mills that are in various states of use, conversion, or ruin. For more information about Dan and his work:
