WOW.. what a place, to me the Old Mill screams out the name DANCH, although it was Mr. Allen who bought the place in 1706, Corky has been the caretaker and inovater of the mill since we were in our 20's which seems to be a life time ago almost... when Irene hit the mill in Aug i think, i called Corky to express my concern... he was a little down as any other person in there right mind would have been, then he had no idea what was going to happen, i then told him i knew that he would take command and lead his life long passion of building a future for the Old Mill, and his family and for his Community... The Mill is truley the life blood of Allentown and always has been..and for it to be in control of anybody else would not be the same... To me The Old Mill and Corky Danch are one in the same... It would be hard for me to see the Old Mill under the tutilidge of anyone other than Corky.... Please pardon the spelling , and RIGHT ON CORKY.....Norm B
kind words indeed. Thank you brother
work at the Mill is progressing just fine. Repairs that have been needed for a long time are finally being done. It's a good feeling see the old place getting TLC.
i am so excited about the rebirth of a spot i love,i am planning a winter trip to take a look, and to become more involved with the whole experience of the old mill, and old friends, and new ones. please more hits to this blog.. let's get all friends of the mill and it's artists and venders to push this blog out there.... norm
thanks for your well wishes. as things progress i'm sure there'll be more of a presence online. You will probably disagree but at this point I'm more concerned with hammers and nails, and finding a great restauranteur.
You will indeed succeed with your restoration, and see your dream complete. I just know it! Thanks for letting me try to hlep you. Jo
I meant Help you. Can't wait to see it thrive!
It's folks like you that will keep it alive and well. We will keep working because it is work worth doing. Thank you for seeing.
It’s been a long time. Norman tells me that you are in the middle of renovating The Old Mill and loving it. The pictures of The Old Mill look lovely, very picturesque and serene. Has the restaurant opened yet? How are you getting on? Have you been following the stream of emails dealing with an early 50 year reunion? Depressing. I checked out my high school class book. Your picture was great, handsome dude, and your comment to me was “Best of luck to a long time buddy”, Sam. Ages ago, huh? Let me know how you are doing and tell Norman to call once in a while. What an ex- cousin- in- law, never calls (LOL).
hey Nick, great to hear from you. Norm has been giving me news about you - all good. It seems that the well wishes for you worked. Glad to hear it.. Got any money you want to invest? Don't get nervous I put the bite on all my rich friends.
Norms been really supportive of me and my endeavors thru the years and I his. I bought a tractor from him and most of my other farm equipment from him.
Great hearing from you, hope to see you at the 65 at 65
Great information and site
I have been living in Allentown for 3 years, I fell in love with the mill. I finally saw so real progress, its amazing! Looking at the restaurant pictures (which I guess was prior to the bridge?)Will you still be opening a restaurant here? I really hope everything works out and the Mill can be the warm thriving heart of Allentown like it was!
Hey Corky I know good things come to those who strive and work hard....You have certainly done both ! Norm B
