The mill runs on electricity, even though close to Caney Creek. Eight to nine hour shifts, then one day non-operating before the next 8-9 hour shift etc. If the owner sees this webpage, perhaps he could e-mail the site manager some additional info. on the mills operation and history, including the old mill.
