The Beauty of Phillips' Mill
The Phillips’ Mill is an actual mill, a strong yet charming stone structure that was once a working grist mill. In the old days, farmers brought their grain to be ground into flour, sharing the news and discussing current events around the old grindstone. Today it’s a unique performing and visual arts center, welcoming artists, photographers, playwrights and art mavens from around the region to its rustic campus.
This is the beauty of Phillips’ Mill. It is so many things to so many people, from history buffs and fine artists to nature lovers and local folks. Around the region, “the Mill” is kind of an icon—a symbol of our industrial past, the birthplace of Pennsylvania Impressionism, and a highly respected arts organization. To the members of our community association, it is just “home.”
The Phillips’ Mill Community Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of the arts and the preservation of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Bucks County area.
Equity & Inclusion
The Phillips’ Mill Community Association is an artistic intellectual community strengthened by diversity. The Mill’s values and practices ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, LGBTQ+, gender, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the Mill’s policies and programs.
We also acknowledge that Phillips’ Mill is on the ancestral lands of the Lenape Haki-nk (Lenni-Lenape) people.
