In 2007 the old mill, in very poor condition, was taken down.

About 200' east of the original site, a house was built, using the stone from the mill, to resemble the mill.

The house is the same size as the mill was using the same design. The windows are the same size and pretty much in the same location as the old mill.

A vintage photo of the front of the old mill. It almost looks as though the fron facade is all that was left of the old mill when the photo or drawing was done.
