What is a grist mill and why did Boxley need one

?

Construction of the mill began in 1869 and it was open

for business

in 1870. Water turned

a wooden

wheel in the early years to power the mill. Later the water powered a turbine.

Slide5

When you visit Boxley Mill, you will participate in activities inside the mill to determine

how the mechanisms worked. Activities outside the mill will provide some history

of the mill and Boxley

Valley.

Boxley Valley was prime bottomland. Settlers farmed and raised families here for many years. Today Boxley fields are grass which is cut for hay

and grazed by cattle …

Slide7

and Elk.

Slide8

The mill pond held water from a spring so

that the

mill would have a power supply

when it was needed. The water flowed to the mill in a wooden raceway to turn a large wooden wheel that powered the machinery inside the mill.

Slide9

Today, the mill pond serves a variety of wildlife, including trumpeter swans.

Slide10

Grist mills served entire communities so they were a

meeting

place. At the mill you gathered your

finished product (from corn to cornmeal) and

the

latest

news from your friends and neighbors.

Do you have a place like this today in your community?

Mill shuts down in

when

raceway falls in.

Boxley Grist

Mill was a working

mill until

the

1950’s. The raceway, damaged by flooding, collapses ending the working life of the mill.
