One of the oldest buildings in Western New York, the Williamsville Mill is a circa 1820's heavy timber mill structure that has served as a lumber, grain, cement and apple cider mill at times over its two century history. It has always been the historic centerpiece of the Village of Williamsville. The Village bought the Mill out of foreclosure in 2005 and has been working toward a comprehensive redevelopment and restoration of the historic parts of the site since that time.
In early 2010, Flynn Battaglia was hired to create a redevelopment plan to make the mill complex commercially viable in the future and to manage the restoration of the mill using grant funding. The firm has created a schematic design for a set of potential infill buildings at the site, as well as for a new pedestrian-oriented Village Square fronting the Mill. The most recent work at the Mill included the stabilization and restoration of the Mill was completed during the Summer of 2015.
