Your event at the Ralston Cider Mill

The grounds at the Ralston Cider Mill provide a unique setting for open air or tented meetings, or special events on the grassland and wooded areas adjacent to the mill and along the mill brook.

The museum is a historic operational cider mill, with all of the original operational equipment within. While not able to accommodate a large event, the mill provides a complimentary element to any event and we can arrange for demonstrations or supplementary functions within.

Our caterer can provide a complete package for all of your specific requirements including tents, tables, chairs, food and beverages. Necessary facilities are located in our visitor center.

Site rental fees depend on the number of guests and services requested. For further inquiries, contact us HERE.

The Ralston Cider Mill makes a lovely location for an event — on September 20, 2011, the Franklin Car Club held a car meet at the Mill.

Franklin cars were built between 1902 and 1934 in Syracuse, NY. As upstate New York was becoming a thriving manufacturing center at the time, the Ralston Cider Mill's presses were also manufactured there. Perhaps some of these lovely Franklin cars visited the Mill when they were brand new!
