Just getting around is half the fun as Whiting Mills has some of the oldest working freight elevators in the State.  There are over 30 artists, artisans, quilters, photographers, potters, woodworkers, specialty shops and much more to explore.

The Mill is has been decorated by the watchful eye and creative genius of Steven Silvester who bedecks the mill with an array of lights and chairs. He has even created a movie that you can watch as you move from floor to floor.

At this annual event each artist offers a variety of items in different media for sale. In addition to touring four floors of this historic building, visitors may enjoy art and craft demonstrations at some of the working art studios.  Each artist, in their respective studios, will offer free food and drinks to visitors. A strolling guitar player, kids activities and door prizes add to the festive atmosphere.

The Whiting Mills is located at 100 Whiting Street, Winsted, Connecticut.  For information call 860-738-2240. Visit
