Welcome to the historic Thorp Mill
Join us on Saturday, May 28th on Memorial Day weekend at Springwood Ranch for Kittitas County’s best local Memorial Day function! Browse through the silent auction tables while awaiting Springwood’s famous alder-smoked top sirloin or chicken dinner with all the fixin’s and enjoy local micro-brews, wine and great live music from Americana band “Centaur Midwife”. Online ticket sales are closed, but tickets will be available at the door. Click here to learn more about our annual fundraiser for the mill.
The Thorp Grist Mill is the only remaining mill in Washington state that made the transition from stone buhr to modern rollers. Built between 1880 and 1883, the mill has been lovingly restored and maintained so visitors can catch a glimpse of history back to the early days of settlement in the state.
Restoration of the mill site continues to this day, with volunteers working on the nationally designated historic landmark throughout the year. We invite you and your friends and family to tour the mill and walk through the interpretive gardens out back.
