Great Mills

Around 1900, John Thomas Cecil built this mill over the foundation of W.W. Cecil's mill which was torn down. The first belt driven roller mill in the county and the saw mill were operated by water power until Cecil's death in 1927. His son, H. Robb Cecil continued the operation converting to diesel power instead of water. The grist mill was closed in 1940 when store-bought bread created too much competition. The saw mill was closed in 1959 after the death of H. Robb Cecil. In 1975 John A. Cecil and William Cecil gave the mill to the historical society for the purpose of preserving the structure and eventually housing a museum.
