Comments

"the older mill had is venerable complement of machinery for flour making as used in times gone by. The new establishment is fitted up with all the improvements & accessories that money and skill can furnish. It was soon apparent that the time had come to so alter the old mill that is would readily compete with those in the west, and with such has been refitted by its own State, and thus produces such brands or grades of flour as would fully hold their own...The location of the mill is one of th wealthiest & best agricultural sections of the state, the soil being unusually deep & underlaid bylimestone, which as we all know, gives good grain producing soil"
