"Mill Stills" is a temporary photo installation in our historic Machine Shop that showcases the Mill's story of innovation and mining -- from humble beginnings as a timid wood structure to iconic status as a historical landmark.
Over the course of a century, three different Mill's have clung to the side of the mountain in Britannia Beach -- occupying different places, spaces, and roles. "Mill Stills" captures the endurance and spirit of the Mill as it evolved into its current role as a National Historic Site and theatrical home for the Museum's new experience BOOM!
