FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Santa Claus to visit Dillard Mill State Historic Site Dec. 14 

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, NOV. 27, 2019 – Dillard Mill State Historic Site invites visitors to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 14. Santa Claus is gearing up for his Christmas deliveries and has once again contacted Dillard Mill to grind special oats for his reindeer. This free event will be at the mill where Santa and Mrs. Claus will hand out ornaments and candy to children. Bring your camera and dress for the weather. Hot cocoa and cookies will be served.

Dillard Mill State Historic Site is one of Missouri’s best-preserved water-powered gristmills. This mill, which has been restored to operational order, was built around 1900 and continued to grind grain until the 1960s. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the park office building.

Dillard Mill State Historic Site State Park is located at 1142 Dillard Mill Road in Davisville. For more information about the event, call the historic site at 573-244-3120.
