Mingus Mill

Used For Grinding Corn For More Than 50 Years, This Turbine Mill From 1886 Still Functions Today.

During its time of operation, area farmers would ride over to Mingus Mill on Saturdays with a turn of corn to be ground. Today volunteers operate the mill during the summer months to demonstrate how it works. The mill is located just a few shady yards from its parking area and restrooms are available.
