Beginning in the mid 1800s, this mill was a vital part of the community.

The original mill used an overshot wheel. However, when we restored the mill in 1979, we converted it to a breast wheel which spills the water over the wheel at mid-point.


This was done in order to be able to first use the fresh, cold 

spring water to raise Rainbow Trout for the fishout 
and restaurant. 
On the milling floor are several artifacts from the 1800's and 1900's.

Outside the mill you will find gears and pulleys left from the era when a small sawmill was powered by the waterwheel.
