The Taylors Mill recently announced two new tenants, The Mad Smash and The Blue Ox Hatchet House, that will occupy space in the Dock No. 3 area of the mill near 13 Stripes Brewery and The Farehouse.

The Mad Smash

The Mad Smash is the brainchild of licensed massage therapist Jennifer Middleton, who specializes in pain relief. Customers can pummel away their frustrations in the rage room by smashing glass or other breakables or destress with a massage.

“I am a big believer in the mind-body connection and believe that when people hold onto emotional stress it has a big effect on their bodies,” Middleton said in a press release. “Sometimes just letting it all out is what is really needed!”

At The Blue Ox Hatchet House, patrons can test their axe throwing skills. The space, which is set to open “soon” according to their website, has eight lanes that accommodate four people each.

Co-proprietors Adam Campbell and Ryan Acierno wanted to open their own axe throwing business after getting hooked on the craft while entertaining clients. “The Mill provides the perfect opportunity and space we’re looking for,” Acierno said in a press release.

The Taylors Mill, known originally as Southern Bleachery, contributed to the vibrancy of the Taylors community for more than 40 years with its mill, mill village, company store, churches, and golf course. Through current revitalization efforts, the project’s mission is keeping crafts, commerce, and gathering spaces alive and well for the community.
