The Mill at Anselma was built by Samuel Lightfoot in 1747 who had purchased five hundred acres of land from Joseph Pike.  Joseph Pike had purchased the land from William Penn.  Even though Penn had been given the land by King Charles II, he negotiated a treaty to purchase with goods that part of Lenapehoking that was the become Penn’s Woods (Pennsylvania).  To the Lenape, land was for the use of every living thing and the earth was to be treated well to nourish all beasts, birds, fish, and man for all generations and did not belong to anyone.  On Saturday, November 7th, 2015, from the hours of 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM visitors are invited to The Mill at Anselma to go back to the time of the Lenapehoking to experience life as a Lenape.   Hands-on activities for the entire family will include:
