In our family, events have been a core tradition. In times of joy, sorrow, and celebration, we have come together as a family. Oak Hill Mill is our dream of sharing that tradition - a space that was crafted for celebration.
For the starting of new families, celebration of old families, or just the simple spending of time together, we invite you to come together.
Renita and Ted Cantrell, Owners
From a Vision to a Reality
Ted and I were married in 1982 and everything that we have done in our lives since has been preparing us for this venture. We owned and operated our family sawmill, Pioneer Wood Products. We were blessed to have our sons alongside us, learning a family craft. In that time, we also bought and operated a restaurant, the Station House, allowing us to share family recipes and once again, come together as a family. The restaurant allowed me to discover my love for catering and event management.
In 2016, we broke ground on Oak Hill Mill with the intent of creating Ted's dream man-cave. Our community and family came together to help build this dream for Ted, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2012. After his diagnosis, Ted asked God to slow the progression of the disease if it was in His will and we truly believe God has granted us this request. Throughout the building process, as we saw family and friends come together, we then realized that this building was meant for greater things: the sharing of life-altering moments, and the event venue was born. It's been a labor of love, community, and family. In June of 2017, we celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary before the building was even complete and it's our desire to celebrate many more of our own and see others begin their lives together and create their own memories.
We invite you to host your next event with us. We cater to a wide variety of events from proms, weddings, company and family picnics, appreciation dinners, holiday parties, showers, vow renewals, and reunions. We offer a range of services, from décor to catering, as well as coordination, event stationary design and printing, and audio options. Basically, we're a one-stop-shop for your events: we do everything except for the wedding dress
We'd love to talk with you, show you the venue, and welcome you to the family.
