Hanford Mills Museum, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2013, operates an authentic water- and steam-powered historic site. The mission of Hanford Mills Museum is to inspire audiences of all ages to explore connections among energy, technology, natural resources, and entrepreneurship in rural communities, with a focus on sustainable choices. Its significance as one of the last nineteenth century mills to survive intact earned it a place on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
