Grist Mill – Berry College

This Old Mill was constructed in 1930 by students at Berry College.  The Republic Mining and Manufacturing Company donated the iron hub which the students then built the 42′ diameter wooden overshot wheel, which is one of the largest in the nation.

Water is piped directly from Berry’s reservoir lake to the wheel where gravity pushes water up the stone column and over the wheel causing it to turn.

The mill is still in working condition.
