Very few people these days have ever had the chance to see an old grist mill in action. Alexander’s Grist Mill in Cuyahoga County of Ohio is one such place and we’ve found some vintage photos of this important (and still standing) historical mill. Come take a tour of this old grist mill, one of only handful that remain to this day.
Mills were once essential to farming communities and the mills themselves became central landmarks for miles around. Mills that did custom orders, like Alexander’s Mill, were essential to farming families because they would process whatever grains were brought to them and variable batch sizes.
