Hello! From georgia we live here in Tunnel Hill. My husband recently bought his grandfather's mill which was up for auction ,it is at least 100 years old has the patent date on it and maker, etc. We can e-mail photos also if needed. PLEASE, if anybody has any info. that will help us to sell this wonderful antique, we would so appreciate it! It is really too big for our tiny yard at home, as it is complete with Ginny pole,it's a Kentucky #1, from LOuisville ,KY.,patent date, June 19, 1877, also have the pan the divider pan for cooking, fully operational ready to go. Mill is mounted on a 10 ft. oak platform.

Have you gotten any info on your mill yet? I am interested in buying an old mill but need one that is definatley in working order. Is your mill a horizontal or vertical mill? We are looking for a vertical mill. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks Lee

never got into mills but wouldn't it be something to get that thing running again? maybe there would be enough local interest to get some funding for restoration - a lotta guys are retiring about now and a few might have spare funds and want a historical project - they sure get into old machinery aruound here :)

Go to this page, you might find something of interest. I have E-mailed Ken Christison in the past and gotten replies. He is really helpful on those old mills.

I also have posted a picture of an old mill I restored for my dad. It's not real good pic but the only one I have.

You done got me started, here is one more you may want to see.

thanks, but I should have clarified that we're only interested in selling it. We have discovered quite a lot of "facts" on it already but cannot find anyone who buys or sells them and we're trying to remodel our house, I wish I could show you a picture, the house is really in bad shape,put it this way , there's a hole in one ceiling, none of the bedrooms have doors, the floors are concrete, the bathroom looks like something from the "blair witch" house! The area is why we bought it,live oak trees, a beautiful view, and loads of PRIVACY! ha. So we brought this thing home to be our "goldmine" sure,right!!! Thank you so much for your interest and write again if you like I'm new to this e-mail stuff but, it's really COOL. Aloha!***!
