DESCRIPTION: History is in motion at the Annual Heritage Festival at McConnells Mill State Park.
The festival celebrates the operational time period of the historical gristmill- from 1852 to 1928, and costumed
vendors will display crafts inspired by this time. Bluegrass music and free tours of the mill will be offered. The
historic gristmill is full of the fascinating machinery that ground the grain for the community surrounding
Slippery Rock Gorge. A Civil War encampment brings history to life, and artisans and craftsmen will demonstrate
their skills throughout the festival.
Admission and parking are free.
