History is in motion the last weekend in September each year at the Annual Heritage Festival at McConnells Mill State Park.  The festival celebrates the operational time period of the historical gristmill – from 1852 to 1928, and costumed vendors will display crafts inspired by this time.

Festival goers can enjoy bluegrass music and free tours of the grist mill.  The historic grist mill is full of machinery that ground the grain for the community surrounding Slippery Rock Gorge.

A civil war encampment brings history to life, and artisans & craftsmen will demonstrate their skills throughout the festival.

The Portersville-Prospect Rotary Club, aided by several local businesses and non-profit organizations, sponsors the Festival.
