Repair job forces delay in March reopening
We’ve got a big repair job in the works at Yates Mill, and it’s forced a small delay in the start of our spring tour season. We’re replacing the forebay this winter, and the project took longer than expected to get going. That means it will be finished later than we hoped, even if the weather cooperates. Visit our News page to read more about the project and the special events we’ll be planning in the meantime for Yates Mill Associates’ 25th anniversary this year.

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.
