A 3.5 story brick mill 60x60 feet with various brick add-ons. Was still operating as a 3rd generation feed mill as of November 1992. Very good condition in a scenic pastoral location.

A 21 ft. internal waterwheel is still present in the mill in fair condition. About 0.5 miles down the road is a camelback bridge in a field on the left.

* Update: The mill is for sale and 2.75 acres. The 21 foot waterwheel is gone from the mill; however, Wolf Brand stands of roller mills are there along with flour sifters and mixers. Graham Sanders 01/04/05*

*Update: This mill was built in 1843 but I don't know by who. There was an earlier mill on this site built in 1775. The mill was still operating in 1977 by John Biesecker & Family. The mill is not operational in 2005. Robert T. Kinsey 02/14/2006*

*Update: I am the owner of the Biesecker Mill in Jackson Township, York County, PA. I need to generate some additional income form the property in order to cover expenses until I can get my plans for restoration and redevelopment under way. I have a large amount of storage space available in the mill - over 10,000 square ft., and will beat any local advetised rates. I will also look at any other innovative ways of generating income from the property to help keep my project afloat. I would appreciate any help, guidance, suggestions from anyone interested in hepling to preserve this beautiful old building. Eric Bickleman 04/30/2009* Location: (ADC Map #19, k 13).
