If you are not familiar with Ben’s Mill, it is a formerly water-powered woodshop and blacksmith shop in Barnet, VT. Ben Thresher was a local legend for his ability to fix or build just about anything out of wood or metal. The mill is owned by a non-profit, Ben’s Mill Historic Trust, with the goal of preserving and continuing to use the building and all the original equipment still located there. Our website, can give you more information about the mill. We hope to see you on the 26th!

Also at Ben’s Mill on October 7th there will be a fundraiser.  Among other activities will be a Ducky Derby ($5 per duck) and there seems to be some prize items that may be of interest to the NEB membership (if not just to show support for a bit of history) — locally made rum, locally made wooden tubs (think slack tub), etc. Ben’s Mill is on the National Registry of Historic Places and is located at 2236 West Barnet Rd, Barnet, VT.
