Recreating a 19th Century Flour Mill

Antique roller mills and bran dusters used to bring century-old flour mill back to life

Starr 30-inch stone mill
This Starr 30-inch stone mill, which may date to 1850, was also referred to as a plantation mill. It could have been used to break down corn into mash for a distillery or to produce pearl cornmeal. After locating the mill in North Carolina, Gary and Bob disassembled it, replaced or rebuilt worn parts, and stripped and refinished all wooden parts for this stunning result.
