It’s hard to imagine Winooski without thinking of the gigantic mills that line the Winooski River and contain so much history and life. A new exhibit at the Heritage Winooski Mill Museum in the Champlain Mill celebrates this local treasure with original illustrations from David Macaulay’s 1983 book, MILL. Although the book is about a fictional mill town, residents will probably see architectural details that look familiar. Eva took a walk around the mills with David in October to learn more about his artistic process and his appreciation of these historic mill structures. You can take a similar adventure using this map.

The exhibit is part of "2020 Vision: Reflecting on a World-Changing Year," a statewide exhibition initiative of the Vermont Curators Group that includes 48 spots across the state. This show is open until March 12; tickets are free but need to be reserved ahead of time.

Please note: Portions of this video were filmed in October for a promotional video featuring Macaulay.
