Appearing like something Currier and Ives might have depicted, this late-nineteenth-century mill is clad in board-and-batten siding, painted red. The trim is painted white. Inside is a veritable maze of belts, pulleys, and other assorted mill equipment that defies logic for the neophyte but obviously made sense to the miller. The operation, apparently steampowered (rather than water-powered) from its inception, is a beautifully preserved example of state-of-the art technology of a century ago. The Monongalia County Historical Society acquired the property in the 1970s and maintains it as a museum.
