Outdoor tables set up in the grist mill parking lot for Hellertown Heritage Day were the perfect spot to enjoy a ‘spot’ of lunch from Licensed 2 Grill food truck.

Heritage Day attendees patiently wait in line for a guided trolley tour of some of Hellertown’s most historic locations, including the borough’s first jail, which was built in 1872 and restored by the Hellertown Historical Society.

“Shopping at the Mill” has become a much-loved tradition at the grist mill, where vendors displayed a variety of unique wares in the historic Tavern Room on the first floor of the building.

Fun was had by young and old alike at Hellertown Heritage Day at the historic Heller-Wagner Grist Mill (Hellertown Historical Society) Saturday.
