1898s cottonseed oil mill and 1920s flour and grist mill

This fascinating reminder of America's agricultural and industrial history contains a gristmill, cotton gin and a weigh station. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the gristmill was built in 1898 as a cottonseed oil mill and converted to a flour and gristmill in the 1920s. One of the few remaining gristmills in the state, the site contains original steam engines and equipment which were powered by sawdust and wood chips from Dorn Lumber Yard.
