The mill, which closed in 1982, was operated by a Fitz waterwheel powering two Anglo-American Miget flour mills. The building was desribed as being in poor cindition in 1989, when it was owned by Spoom members, Paul and Anna Shenk. The Shenks had put the mill up for sale at that time. Photo taken from Fort Zellers Road.
