The Silk Mill in Hawley has been a vital part of this community since its construction in 1880. Its many incarnations over the years have included a silk factory with the foremost technology of the day, a textile factory, and antique center. Never has it been more vibrant than today. The vision for the repurposed factory is to have a center that celebrates the lifestyle of the Pocono Lake Region – a place for the residents and visitors alike to shop, gather, eat, exercise, and learn.
The design of the ground floor Retail Center is the creation of renowned architect, Peter Bohlin, known for his creative Apple retail store designs. The glass partitions dividing the spaces allow the natural light from the River Gorge behind the Mill to spill over into the retail spaces. Here you will find a Market and Bakery with Specialty Beers, Several Galleries, Unique Small Shops featuring clothing, shoes, antiques and home accessories. For fitness lovers there is a Bicycle Shop and to top it off Lake Region Fitness Center hosts a full service gym complete with spin, yoga and a full array of classes.
