the mill


THE MILL is an artistic retreat, production facility, and education center. THE MILL invites established artists and emerging professionals to develop new works in a feedback-rich environment of collaboration, learning, and mentorship.

Housed in a Vermont Gristmill (built in 1764 by Remember Baker - first cousin to Ethan Allen and Seth Warner), THE MILL fosters dynamic collaborations among individual creatives and facilitates exciting joint efforts among cultural organizations.

Approximately 3.5 hours from Manhattan and Boston, THE MILL in East Arlington, Vermont is an inspiring setting. The building’s original purpose was to refine wheat into coarse grain (grist) and then into flour. THE MILL’s purpose today is to assist young creatives in refining their talents and skills – and to allow established artists to re-define themselves by exploring new creative territory in a safe space. This dual-goal creates the opportunity for emerging talent to receive high-level mentorship from seasoned professionals. Every generation of creatives leaves an artistic legacy to the next. At THE MILL, we nurture that legacy.

Once a meeting place for The Revolutionaries, THE MILL is now a home for both young and mature creatives to collaborate and develop Revolutionary ideas in the Arts and Humanities!
