Newlin Grist Mill

Join us for our annual series in which we explore different aspects of Newlin Grist Mill’s unique historical and environmental resources. Get an in-depth look at the site with special programs from both Newlin staff and outside presenters.

Sponsored by Team Toyota, our 2021 Newlin Series focuses on the history of women & work. Like last year’s series, it will be offered virtually via Zoom. Visit The Newlin Series page for the full slate of presentations.


This program will be a discussion focused on women in industry in the 18th and early 19th centuries by Amanda Doggett. She will also cover challenges facing women in traditional industries today, as well as the difficulties of researching women’s history in general.

Amanda Doggett is an Apprentice Joiner at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her research focus outside of traditional woodworking includes women’s industrial history, the African and African-Virginian experience in Virginia, as well as gender and sexual history. Amanda is a Certified Interpretive Guide with the National Association of Interpretation and passionate about inclusive and dynamic public history. In her free time, Amanda enjoys running and spending time with her coonhound Chuck.
