Preservation of the Phillips’ Mill

The preservation of old buildings helps us hold on to
a piece of our history—and our cultural identity.

Mill Preservation

Phillips’ Mill dates back to 1756. Originally a grist mill, it was operated by the Phillips family for many generations to serve the needs of local farmers.

History of Phillips Mill Building

When we invest time and energy into preserving an antique building, we feel a sense of pride and a stronger connection to our past. And when the building is historic, as is the Phillips' Mill, we feel a sense of responsibility. The Phillips’ Mill structure itself is unique and charming, and tells the story of the Early Industrial Revolution.

Buildings such as the Phillips’ Mill remind us of where we came from. They can even boost tourism in our communities. They can be both sturdy and fragile at the same time, requiring meticulous attention to detail to preserve. We are blessed to own this treasure and committed to providing the loving care it requires year round.

The Phillips’ Mill Preservation and Endowment Fund

The Phillips’ Mill Preservation and Endowment Fund was created in 2009 to provide a reliable source of income to preserve and improve the Mill, as well as to help support the organization’s mission of promoting the fine and performing arts in Bucks County, Pa. 

The Phillips’ Mill Community Association launched the fund with $25,000: an initial $15,000, raised at a progressive dinner fundraising event, and an additional $10,000 from its general funds.

Since that time, the Phillips’ Mill Community Association has hosted at least one fundraising event a year, including many lively galas. These wonderful events make it possible for PMCA not only to maintain and improve the Mill structure, but also to bring its community together to celebrate the arts and build lifelong friendships.
