In 2007 a new feature was added to partially re-animate the mill. An electric motor now turns a section of line shaft attached to two woodworking machines. This allows visitors to see the principles which were used to transfer mechanical energy throughout the mill.

In 2008 an ongoing project was begun to clean up and subtly reorganize the overall display. The goal is to allow the visitor to better visualize the various functions of the mill while remaining historically accurate.
