Begun by volunteers in 1971 to raise funds to restore the 1855 mill & surrounding buildings, Prater’s Mill Country Fair is an invitation-only show where all the exhibitors must hand-make their items out of only natural materials. We have the best Southern food this side of Heaven, most prepared by local groups.
Prater’s Mill Historic Site is owned by the people of Whitfield County but operated and maintained by the Prater’s Mill Foundation. As a non-profit volunteer group, the foundation relies heavily on the revenue from the annual Country Fair. This is our primary fundraising event. All proceeds go back into site maintenance and day to day operations. The mission of the foundation is to protect, preserve and present the heritage of the Prater’s Mill Site for future generations.
