ABOUT THE MILL
The Sage Street Mill is located in the heart of the Village of North Bennington. Our 25,000 sq. ft historic brick mill facility sits along Paran Creek, with 5+ acres of land including a beautiful private walking trail to Lake Paran.
For the past 26 years, The Mill has generated award-winning projects, partnerships, and initiatives in the areas of historic preservation, arts, health, and community building.
We now have a variety of newly renovated spaces including live-work residential lofts, multi-purpose studios, and galleries for presenting music, visual arts, dance, yoga and wellness programs, as well as a multi-purpose generator space that we are developing for socially responsible businesses, makers and entrepreneurs.
All this makes the Sage Street Mill a great place to live and work, as well as a beautiful place for retreats, community gatherings, art events, and learning.
Join us in the re-birth of this special place!
