It is still being operated as a feed mill, supplying local farmers with livestock feed and seeds for planting.

The large mill looks to have had some of its structure torn away on the back side toward the railroad siding.

*Update: The current owners are retiring. My wife and I plan to renovate the Dallas Feed & Seed building as an independent feed and garden business, Old Mill Feed & Garden, opening in July of this year, 2007. The equipment will be shut down, but left in place for posterity. The biggest issue is the roof, which will be replaced in sections as we are able. The worst section of roof will be replaced this summer. We are removing a porch which was added on after the time of your photos. We're installing a canvas awning the full length of the loading dock. The building has operated as a feed store for 90 years, we hope our repairs prepare it to last another 90*
