We’ll have merchandise, crafts, cornmeal and cookbooks this Saturday, Nov. 18, in the visitor center at Historic Yates Mill County Park, 4620 Lake Wheeler Road just south of Raleigh. Drop by between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to pick up your supplies for cooking and gift-giving.

We’ll be selling copies of this 1878 map of Wake County, suitable for framing and giving to your favorite history buff. This map was produced by the State Archives, and YMA will sell a copy to you for $5. As with all our merchandise and crafts, proceeds go entirely toward our work to maintain and operate historic Yates Mill.

While you’re at the park, take a tour of Yates Mill during our last corn-grinding of the year. Tours take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (final tours each day start at 3:40 p.m.).

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.
