1878 - 1914

This millstone is the last remnant of the flour mill that operated on the river bank a half-mile to the south. Power was provided by the stream that now tumbles down a rocky slope on the north boundary of the Wisconsin Interstate Park.

Pieces of chert, a quartz-like stone mined in Germany, are tightly secured by a metal band to form this millstone. Four feet in diameter, the mill stone weighs about 1,500 pounds.
