Old Mill Heritage Day in Pigeon Forge

By: Master Account / 27 Aug 2017

Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 23rd! Take the whole family to the annual Old Mill Heritage Day in Pigeon Forge. This local tradition is a fun event offering endless hours of all-ages fun. Your kids will love the cute animals at the petting zoo and live bluegrass bands. They can also take a ride on the kiddie train for the perfect family photo op. Stop by the farmers market to shop for local treats and watch a basket making or quilt demonstration by expert weavers. You can even play old-fashioned games and learn how to make apple butter!

Step back in time to see what life was like during the 18th century in Pigeon Forge. You can take a free guided tour of the Old Mill to see an important part of Tennessee history. The mill is on the National Register of Historic Places and provided electricity to the city until 1935. Today you can eat in the restaurant that serves up classic Southern cuisine like biscuits, cornbread, and hush puppies. 

Before you head off to the 14th Annual Old Mill for Heritage Day, you can start your morning at our hotel with a complimentary breakfast. Enjoy freshly brewed coffee and a nice selection of pastries, cereal, and fruit. You won't have to rush out right after breakfast because you can drive to the Old Mill in less than 10 minutes. The fun kicks off at 10 am and runs all day until 6 pm.
