Current Exhibit: History of Peirce Mill

An opening reception for this month's exhibit "Peirce Mill: 200 Years in the Nation's Capital" will be held from 6 to 8pm on Thursday, October 6 at Modern Times Coffeehouse. Complimentary food and drink will be provided to guests and wi-fi will be turned off during those hours. Please join us to learn more about this important landmark just around the bend from us in Rock Creek Park.

“Peirce Mill: 200 Years in the Nation’s Capital,” an historical exhibit featuring the works of Washington designers/artists Katherine Lenard and Mary Belcher. The exhibit tells the story of how a Quaker milling family became one of the largest landholders in Washington during the 19th century, and the later transformation of the Rock Creek Park mill into a beloved landmark operated by the National Park Service.

The show coincides with the re-opening of the mill after a 20-year shutdown. For more information on Friends of Peirce Mill, check out the website at http://peircemill-friends.org or their Facebook page.
