The upper gable end of the hip-roofed mill is wood, at least on the front. A nice change to the mill since 1983. The lettering on the front of the wooden section has been lost, however. Once one coulkd read flour, feed, grain, & seed to the left of the vertical doors. A unidentified logo of some sort had existed on the yellow painred surface to the right side of the business doors in 1983 and earlier.

Some improvements had been accomplished since the 1983 photo was taken. Ivy was allowed to grow upon the lower half of the stone poortion of the mill by 1987. The ivy has now been removed by 2007. The stone miller's residence is located across Pa 212 from the mill complex, beside Sideline Road junction.
