These were on one of the buildings at Frye’s Measure Mill. It was one of those situations in which I took photos from many angles and liked this on the best in editing.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Frye’s Measure Mill has been water powered since the 1850’s. They continue to fashion round and oval pantry boxes, measures, and piggins (like a wooden ladle) as they have done for years. The also reproduce Shaker boxes using the panstaking methods pioneered by the Shakers themselves. I hope to return on a Satudray this summer or fall and take a tour of the manufacturing process. More photos are below.
