Welcome to the historic Thorp Mill
2017 Annual Thorp Mill Dinner/Auction
The Thorp Mill Dinner & Auction is Kittitas County’s premier Memorial Day weekend event! Join us at the scenic Springwood Ranch for our annual gathering to celebrate and support the Thorp Mill. Built between 1880 and 1883, it is the only remaining mill in Washington state that made the transition from stone to modern rollers. Dine, drink local beer and wine, and dance to Centaur Midwife all the while contributing to the preservation of this historic mill! We look forward to seeing you there.

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 inside of the mill from Memorial Day through the first week in October and take the outdoor interpretive tour at any time throughout year.
