The mill was built by Anderson sometime between 1800 and 1830. *Update: It burnt down in the late 1800's and was rebuilt from the foundation up in the years 1899 & 1900. The original wheel on the mill was wooden and was replaced when the mill was rebuilt. My Great-grandfather owned this mill for years, it is now owned by my uncle Gene Badders, since the 1970's.

The mill was later used as a cider mill and is in good condition today. It is being restored from the foundation/first story upward.
