One of the first things we did at the mill was to certify the 50,000 pound scales which are now opened to the public for free. We look forward to anyone in the community coming and using them. If you drive by the Mill today, you'll see the huge holes that were in the roof are now gone! The Mill is now covered with beautiful galvanized steel roofing! She is now weather tight and has new Bling as well!
We have been at the mill now for 4 months and life has been crazy! It took us 30 days to just shovel out all the garbage, mice crap, cat crap, and bird crap! There is a tunnel that goes 30 feet under the silos, it was filled with 24 inches of mice crap, dead cats, dead racoons, and who knows what other kinds of death mingled with grain were still there.
During the first 30 days we also installed new sewage and water line Thanks to Branch Cox (MJK Construction) who fitted us into their busy schedule.
We have cleaned and cleaned and cleand so many times you would think by now the Mill would be clean... No such luck... so we are still cleaning. The list of things that we have done up to this point is probably too long and boring for you to read. Go to the Link below and you can see all the pictures for yourself.
We have loved all the people that have visited us and told us their stories about how they, or their fathers and grandfathers, had worked at the Mill and how much it means to them that the Mill will not be taken down and more importantly, that the Mill will be saved!
We have also started a Go Fund Me account for those able and intrested in helping us Save The Mill!
Come follow us on our journey as we turn the Old Mill into our Forever Home!
