Located on Blackman Stream in Bradley Maine, Leonard’s Mills is at the actual site of an early pioneer settlement, identified by the remains of a stone dam and the foundations of several houses. Today, Leonard’s Mills is “alive” once again, as the Museum is represented by an authentic reconstruction of a logging and milling community of the 1790s. On-campus museum exhibits include a water-powered mill, an active blacksmith shop , Grady’s Machine Shop, and a 17- weir and rock pool fish ladder.

Join us in celebrating the upstream migration of alewifes, their ascent of the fishway, and their return to historic spawning grounds in Chemo Pond. NOAA and USFWS biologist will assist visitors in dip netting alewifes, transporting them to the the fishway, and explaining  why it’s so important for the “fish that feeds everything” to migrate.
