The first Old Mill Day was held in 1989, and for a quarter century, the celebration has remained a time when the Bradfordsville community comes together.
Admittedly, it was a noticeably smaller affair when it first began.
“We had the supper. We had fireworks. We had music,” Bradfordsville Mayor David Edelen recalled.
The idea for Old Mill Day, in a way, rose out of what many in the community considered a sad event — the closing of the Bradfordsville School in 1984.
