Jean McClellan Brings the Club Up to Date on the Chamberlin Mill Restoration


Rotarian Joe Adiletta introduced Mrs. McClellan to the Club.  In 2008 the Nature Conservancy acquired the mill and the surrounding 98 acres from the Chamberlin Family Trust.  In 2012, the Nature Conservancy working with the Woodstock Historical Society, established a long term owner for the Mill, Chamberlin Mill, Inc.  This non-profit, tax exempt organization is moving forward to preserve and restore the 19th Century Sawmill.  Nicholas Bellantoni, a Connecticut State Archaeologist (now retired), called the Mill "one of the most important small-scale industrial sites that I have seen in New England".  For more information on the Mill visit
