Eric Sloane and Spooky Demonstrate the Dog Mill

Eric Sloane enjoyed showing how he trained his dog “Spooky” to run on a dog mill to power a butter churn. Here Sloane is relaxing a bit at the dedication ceremonies of the Sloane-Stanley Museum and Kent Iron Furnace on Wednesday, May 28, 1969. From Wil Mauch’s newly published “Symbols of American Spirit : 50 Years of the Eric Sloane Museum”. We will be posting some history of the museum and how it came to be, leading up to the July 2, 2022 celebration to be held on the grounds of the Eric Sloane Museum in Kent.
