|The Springhouse in the foreground at the Anselma Mill, Chester Springs, PA|
Over 300 years ago,
the land on which the Anselma Mill stands was once owned by William Penn,
the founder of Pennsylvania -
and by US standards
three centuries is a very long time in history.
In the mid 18th century,
a mill was built here for local farmers to grind their grain
|Step Into History|
the mill hosts a farmer's market
where you can purchase their stone ground flour and corn meal
ground with the original colonial era power train.

I am one of those people who hates to see one
to put up a
parking lot shopping mall.
