The basement was of poured concrete very likely some of Henry Mercer's work. Two other drive thru and back in loading bays to the rear of the 45'x100' mill building by roof width and length. This pic is of the enlarged, original mill resided with prepainted red metal siding after the takeover by Farm Bureau in the late '60s/early '70s.

Fire destroyed the 1923 mill in the mid-late 1970's and Farm Bureau rebuilt with a smaller feed store/warehouse complex. This picture is circa 1940 from a calender of that period.

This photograph was taken by my father, Samuel O. Miller, who worked at the mill from about 1928-1964. The mill house in the background was our house, half of it, the first five years of my life. The house was torn down before the mill burned and was replaced by a Sunoco Service Station which fronts on both Pa 313 and Mill St.

"I beseech you therefore, brethern, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service."
(Romans 12:1 NKJV)
