arrangements (such as reservations for lunch, advance purchase of tickets
(paid separately), and discussing ideas by telephone with you in advance
of your arrival, and we will provide one half hour or more entertaining walking tour of historical
buildings, the mill and possibly some crafters doing their work.
We'll fill you in on some very interesting stories about the past. We promise you are sure to be pleased!
