Peirce Mill Fact Sheet




Who are the Friends of Peirce Mill?

The Friends of Peirce Mill ("the Friends") is a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization formed in 1997 to restore to operating condition the historic Peirce Mill in Rock Creek Park, a National Park Service property in the heart of nation's capital. With that mission completed in 2011, the Friends now are dedicated to maintaining the mill, managing the school education program, and developing innovative projects that engage new audiences and maintain public support.

Why restore Peirce Mill?
Peirce Mill, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a valuable education resource and one of the few remaining buildings that explain Washington’s agrarian past. It is an early example of renewable energy and American technological achievement.
How can you support Peirce Mill?
In a time of continued government budget cuts, the Friends remain an important advocate for the operation of the mill and expansion of programs. We welcome tax-deductible contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations to support this valuable piece of history in Washington, D.C. New volunteers are needed to assist the FOPM board and serve as docents at the mill and visitor center. Please see the Join Us page.
