The Red Mill Inn in the News
High winds take shot at renovation project
It leaves most people in Baldwinsville excited, the project to turn the old, dilapidated Paper Mill into a 32 room inn. Over the last month, the building has been hit with rain and then, this week, wind, high wind running unabated down the Seneca River.
"We had a couple of small walls that got knocked down by the wind, but it was insignificant. An hours worth of work to stand them back up and continue on," said Jake McKenna with Parsons-McKenna Construction.
McKenna says the recent weather with all the wind and rain has slowed down construction a little bit, but he says it can all be made up over the winter.
"We're currently enclosing the building, hope to have hit totally enclosed within the next couple of weeks then we'll concentrate on the interior finishes," he said.
Interior finishes that should bring the mill back to its past charm.
"We've done a lot of historical exploration and research in order to come up with what the building ought to look like to make it historically correct from 1800's," McKenna said.
When will you get a chance to see the result of all this work or perhaps sleep in it? Well, if weather and luck permits, perhaps this spring.
McKenna says he'll be talking with various community and business groups soon to give them a complete update on the project.
