We Support; The Old Emlenton Mill – Nancy & Paul Newbury

Nancy & Paul Newbury took The Emlenton Mill and made it into a historical venue for our community. Inside, a creamery, an emporium filled with vendors, a museum and a bunkhouse. Entertainment could be heard every Saturday night during the summer on their Patio. The history behind the building goes about 140 years into the past, and Nancy & Paul were making The Emlenton Mill into something once again. Thursday night, February 5th, a massive fire took out the building. Amy’s Closest, a business directly beside the Mill was also destroyed due to the fire. Firefighters took on the blaze in subzero temperatures for hours. Thankfully, no one was hurt. Photos of the fire and the aftermath can be found on Explore Clarion and Explore Venango on Facebook. This is a hit to our community, and we ask that we all pull together and give back.
