The Mill at Anselma was named a National Historic Landmark in 2005, although the organization has been celebrating the property and its rich history since 1998. Based in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania and resting on 22 acres, The Mill “retains its original Colonial-Era power train, as well as multiple layers of industrial equipment ranging from the late 1700s to the mid 1900s.”

We spoke with Will Caverly, the Executive Director at The Mill, about his experience as an early adopter of the Charity Charge Nonprofit Business Card. He said:

We adopted the Charity Charge card because we were looking for a card that gave us more flexibility as a non-profit. Small non-profits like the Mill at Anselma need financial infrastructure catered to their size and sometimes unpredictable activity.

He went on to say that, “We are absolutely thrilled about the cash back option that the Charity Charge card has. There’s always something to fix at our 250 year old historic site and Charity Charge gives us just a little bit more cash on hand to work with.”

Today, The Mill is open to the public and hosts educational and entertaining events. They strive to fulfill a mission to, “Inspire people in creative ways to discover the Mill’s authentic technology and importance to its community over three centuries of operation.”

Caverly spoke to the significance of the organization and the importance of our partnership through their use of the business card:

Our historic homestead is a really special place within our county, our state, and our country. With an original grain mill and six other buildings, the Mill at Anselma demonstrates how life was lived in the colonial-era all the way through the Great Depression.

As Executive Director, I’m always thrilled by the sense of discovery visitors find when they come to our site. We serve several thousand people a year visiting, in various capacities: school group tours, an annual benefit dinner, our Second Saturday educational series, a 5K race, and many more creative ways to explore history.

We’re truly grateful for our partnerships with services like Charity Charge, enabling us to do our education and preservation work.

We encourage you to find out more about this historic site, especially if you reside in Pennsylvania or plan to visit soon! The Mill at Anselma is sure to be an enriching experience for all ages.
