Spanger's Mill dam, 135' long and 8' high, was built to replace a crib dam in 1911 by George Spangler. The dam is slated to be removed, as it is non-essential for the demised grist mill, either in October 2007 or sometime in 2008.

The mill site with silos and renovated barn which is the offices and part warehouse for Ewing Roofing Co., the company that owns the old mill property. They were so accomodating and friendly, permitting the photos to be taken of the vintage pictures and providing as much info as they had knowledge about.
