Thanks for another historic year at Yates Mill
Thanks to all of you who visited or made a gift to support historic Yates Mill in this, YMA’s 25th anniversary year. Our tour season is now over, but we’re already preparing to welcome guests again in March 2015. Our tours are the only way you can get a look inside Wake County’s only remaining operable gristmill. All proceeds from tour tickets go directly to the maintenance, operation and support of Yates Mill.
During this holiday season, please consider making a gift to YMA to help us keep Yates Mill open and operating. You can donate securely right here on our website or download information about how to mail a check to us.
While you wait for our 2015 tour season to begin, enjoy a look at this year’s first cornmeal-grinding …
Remember that your gifts and YMA memberships help us keep the wheel turning. We can’t do it without you — thank you!
Yates Mill is a fully restored, circa-1756 gristmill located in Raleigh, North Carolina. It is the centerpiece of Historic Yates Mill County Park, located in central Wake County. The mill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only restored, operational automatic mill in North Carolina and one of just a few in the country.
Yates Mill Associates Inc. is the guardian of this unique cultural and historic site. YMA was formed in 1989 to restore, preserve and operate the mill, and we are solely responsible for funding its upkeep and repair. Yates Mill Associates developed partnerships with Wake County and North Carolina State University, the mill owner and guardian, to develop a park around this significant relic. Today, this community resource also includes the A. E. Finley Center for Education and Research, and a 174-acre nature preserve.
