c. 1859; c. 1900 addition. 84 Casselman Rd.

Some portions of an original 1797 foundation survive within the current mill rebuilt c. 1859 as a heavy timber-frame building on a coursed sandstone foundation. This five-bay section was expanded c. 1900 by a two-bay frame addition. The mill was still in operation until 1994, making it one of the longest continuously operating mills in Maryland. In 2002 the Penn Alps Association entered into an agreement with a Kentucky miller to restore and reopen the mill. A reproduction high breastshot waterwheel was installed, but the historic milling equipment is largely operated by electricity. Stanton Mill’s products are sold at the Penn Alps store.
