Following the themes found in our newly expanded Print Shop, Carillon Historical Park is building a primitive papermill. Here is a picture of the foundation along with a rendering of the timber frame.

The future papermill will serve as an immersive exhibit allowing guests to view how early mills functioned and the technology progressed through the 19th century. Guests will be able to explore the mill and make their way up to a bridge leading over the new railroad to the Glacial slides. Due to the ongoing construction the slides will be closed until the mill is completed later this year.

Visit Carillon Historical Park today and join us in our mission to inspire generations by connecting them with the unique people, places, and events that changed Dayton and the world.
