Historical Society leases old Yarns Cider Mill
The negotiations are complete and Historical Society President Sandra Wilmot and owner
Gloria Suraci Bilotta have signed a lease for one dollar a year, granting the Historical Society
the opportunity to renovate the old Yarns Cider Mill. The Historical Society plans to install a
parking lot, repair the building and renovate the machinery to operating condition. The long range
goal is to press apple cider on several weekends each fall. A walking trail will connect the
Cider Mill to the Hoover School.
