The front of the original structure with its unusual fascade and some original advertizing lettering visible. ***Update: Jacob & George Wolff purchased the existing mill, New Haven Roller Mills, in 1876, remnaming it Wolff Brothers Milling. The parnership of Jacob and his brother lasted until 1888, when Jacob sold out to George and the Wolff Milling company was incorporated in that year. Goerge and his sons operated the mill until c. 1923. Jacob and family moved to LaGrange, St Louis County, Missouri where he purchased the Climax Mills and changed the name to The People's Exchange Feed Mill.

"'Now therefore,' says the Lord, 'turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.' So rend your hearts, and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm."
(Joel 2:12,13 NKJV)
