Constructed by Jacob Kline and his son Anthony as a combination grist and flaxseed oil mill, this gambrel-roofed log mill set on a raised stone basement still houses much of its original machinery. As most mill machinery was modernized along with changes in technology, a mill with its original machinery, in this case based on the Oliver Evans system, is rare.
