Hanford Mills Museum – A Piece of History in Meredith, NY

Experience a story of innovation, ingenuity and entrepreneurship at a historic working mill site. Sheltered in a valley in the northwestern Catskills of New York, Hanford Mills Museum offers insights into the past and lessons about the relationships between people, the things they make, and the places they live.


The Museum and mill site is open for our 50th Anniversary season.   We are offering tours at 10:30, noon, 1:30 and 3:00 Wednesday through Sunday until October 15.  Reservations are suggested as tour size is limited and can be made using our Reservation Form here or by calling 607-278-5744.
