-A A +A
Oakland Mill
1867. 1.5 miles west of Maquoketa

This two-story stone mill has been rescued from neglect and has been restored (from 1976 on). Water from the adjacent Mill Creek enters the base of the building and once powered two 25-horsepower turbines. The building, which has a symmetrically fenestrated facade, now houses an art gallery, and it is open to the public.
