Built ca.1854 on a mill site in use since the 1770s, this large brick building on Little River was used for grinding com, wheat, and other grains. A post office and various commercial enterprises operated near the mill during the 1800s. The mill yard was a popular place for political rallies and social gatherings well into the 20th century.
