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.
As our primary fundraising event, all proceeds from Prater’s Mill County Fair fund the Foundation’s mission, to protect, preserve, and present the heritage of the Prater’s Mill Historic Site for future generations.
