Halifax Roller Mill

-A A +A
1915. 5342 Halifax Rd.

Set diagonally to the road but parallel to the railroad tracks that served the mill, this three-story, four-bay frame structure, now sheathed with Bricktex, had cylindrical rollers powered by electricity to grind grain. The building has a loading dock and is topped with a simple but elegant bracketed cornice featuring ball drops. Large silos stand behind the mill, which is now closed.
