BEAR'S MILL

We Would Love To Hear From You!

For many years Bear’s Mill was fully powered by water. Our electrical system and lighting functioned thanks to the natural power of the millrace, which turns a 150 year old Leffel vertical turbine, a drive shaft and differential from an old Chevy truck, a pulley system and two 3kW DC servo motors/generators. The turbine itself, with a seven foot head of water, has the capability of delivering 15kW of power.
