Old Schwamb Mill in Arlington, MA

The Spring Trip is on May 21st to the Old Schwamb Mill in Arlington, Massachusetts. Go to their website and check them out. For over 100 years the mill made those oval picture frames used for photos of your old aunt with the stern eyes. The frames are turned on a lathe. THEY’RE OVALS! Even Jon Siegel doesn’t turn ovals, at least intentionally. Anyone can visit the Mill on Saturdays and see this lathe, sitting idle on display. By special arrangement, the Mill will have their turner running the lathe for us that Saturday.

A nonprofit group runs the The Old Schwamb Mill just two days a week. We will support them with their standard $5.00 admission fee at the door. Registration is needed for tour planning purposes.
