Reviving the Freedom Mill
June 21, 2014  
The Freedom Mill

When environmentalist Tony Grassi takes a crazy gamble to rehab an abandoned Mill, he inspires both skepticism and hope that its revived bond with the river will breathe new life into the town of Freedom, Maine.

With the help of a colorful team of builders, masons, engineers and architects, he sets out to reconstruct a forgotten historical treasure. Can his 21st century vision of conservation re-power this rural community, which is now welcoming a new generation of young farmers?

Reviving the Freedom Mill was produced by David Conover of Compass Light Productions
