Read about last year’s Chickin Pickin’ on our news page.

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.
