The Millworks is located in the Midtown area of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Using reclaimed lumber salvaged from the building, which was formerly the Stokes Millwork, the design preserves the historic timber and brick feel to bring together a true bohemian atmosphere.
The 24,000 sq. ft. facility has been under construction for two years and will eventually be part of the National Park Service Registry of Historic Places. We estimate that nearly 50% of new construction materials were saved by re-purposing a great quantity of lumber left in the building at purchase, including our tables, bar tops, window and door assemblies and countless other features. Some of our lighting came out of the Broad Street Market from the 1920’s, the side of a Pennsylvania railroad car hangs in the restaurant, and brick from an 1830’s Perry County farmhouse was used to build our wood-fired oven.
Our Connection to the Broad Street Market
We believe that the Broad Street Market, the oldest farmers market in the country, will again be the centerpiece of Pennsylvania agriculture and food, and we are deeply committed to helping make that happen.
Destination Midtown Harrisburg
Midtown Harrisburg is under-going nothing short of a Renaissance as of late. A truly unique experience has recently developed with multiple anchor projects already open, and more to come. Spend the day buying books at one of America’s great bookstores, The Midtown Scholar, enjoy world-class art at the gorgeous new Susquehanna Arts Museum, do your grocery shopping at the Broad Street Market, and of course, visit us at the Millworks! If staying overnight, City House Bed and Breakfast has wonderful charm, or enjoy an independent film at the Midtown Cinema.
