Work is still in the planning stages for the mill in St. Marys.

The architectural plans for the mill have been completed and are now in the hands of a local engineer, who is contact with the State Historical Society.  St. Marys mayor Pat McGowan says that the structure of the mill is still sound.  The main focus of the restoration will be on the attached sheds and the roof.  As of now, the city only has enough funds to work on the outside of the mill, but they plan on keeping as much material as they can.

"We will save all the materials that we can save from it, and on those materials that may have to be replaced, they must be replaced by as close as what we can get to the existing materials," said Mayor McGowan.  "There won’t be a vinyl siding on it, there won’t be concrete siding on it - there will be original siding, just like we cut out of the words that existed here then."

The mayor hopes to start physical work on the mill in about four to five months.
