Terry & Julie Clark of Bear's Mill are Darke County Visitors Bureau's 2013 Tourism Citizens of the Year

July 8, 2013

The Darke County Visitors Bureau Tourism Citizen of the Year award was presented to Julie and Terry Clark. Tourism Board Member and Director of Darke County Park District, Roger Van Frank, presented the award.

The Clarks own Historic Bear’s Mill, having purchased it in 1978 shortly after it had been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1848, Bears Mill is the oldest water-powered mill still operating in Ohio. Thousands of visitors a year explore the 4-story building. It is surrounded by walking trails and provides its own power through a water-powered generator.

Julie Clark is a talented pottery artist while Terry is a retired truck driver. Operation of the mill was turned over to a 501c3 group, Friends of Bears Mill, in 1999.
