Bridge Lighting Event

Saturday, November 23rd

Celebrate the start of the holidays at Motor Mill with the 3rd Annual Bridge Lighting and open house on November 23rd from 5:00-6:30 PM.

This event will kick off a year of celebration to honor 150 years of history. Motor Mill was completed in December of 1869 and opened for business that January. We will be celebrating this momentous occasion throughout 2020 with a variety of special events. Come down to the mill to celebrate with the Motor Mill Foundation. There will be hot chocolate, cookies, as well as gifts to inspire your holiday shopping!

Each year local friendly elves work hard to light up the bridge for all to enjoy. So head over the river and through the woods to Motor Mill for a festive evening in a beautiful and historic setting. After enjoying the twinkling bridge lights head to Hope Lutheran Church for a soup supper to support the Littleport Fire Department.

Motor Mill Historic Site is located at 23002 Grain Road, Elkader, Iowa. For more information on this and other events call 563-245-1516 or visit www.claytoncountyconservation.org or www.motormill.org.
