The iconic structure Swift Creek Mill Theatre calls home has been around since at least 1663 – that’s more than 350 years! We can only imagine that a building of this size would have been a major undertaking in the 1600’s, not only because of the granite bedrock that was laboriously removed to create the basement, but also because this was a “new world” then, not even 60 years after Jamestown was established. This new watermill must have been part of the promise of industry in America, and today it is the promise of the enduring strength of our community. Renovated in 2013, the mill building is now ADA compliant but still retains the charm that it has held for centuries.
