This old mill has gone through many significant improvements (including heating in the 1940s and AC in the 1990s!), and now we think it is time to bring lighting and sound up to the 21st century. Help us reach this goal before our next production.

The Grist - December 2023

We have much to celebrate this holiday season. Our lively, engaged and creative community has grown significantly over the past year. Through the arts, we have been able to bring people together to explore new ideas, share perspectives, and experience joy and human connection, in a time when many need it the most.

‍Lights & Sound Upgrade

The historic theater at the Phillips’ Mill has hosted hundreds of plays and events since Dr. George Morley Marshall transformed the old mill into an arts venue in 1910. We have researched the cost of renovating lighting and sound and are reaching out to you to help us do this much-needed upgrade.

Advice to Young Artists: “Just Create” 

Ellen Pietsch remembers going to see her older sister’s artwork on display at the Phillips’ Mill Youth Art Exhibition and thinking, “Wow, this artwork is so out of the box, things I haven’t seen before. Paper cutouts in a shadow box, a bunch of shadows reflected off the light. How do people get these ideas?”

Our Historic Site

The historic Phillips’ Mill has been a welcoming space for visual and performing artists for more than 100 years. Yet, our quaint center for the arts was once a working grist mill, a structure of historic significance that we must preserve for generations to come.


“The single most important component of a camera is the 12 inches behind it!”

Ansel Adams

“Artists don’t need anyone else to make their art, but they do need to have it seen if they want their voice heard or they want to pursue a career.”

Robert Beck

“I have been coming to the Phillips’ Mill art show for years and seen some incredible work and met many great artists. Year after year, this show is a reminder of how much talent there is in this area.”
