Inscription. Steam driven grist mill, built ca. 1870 by Henry Koontz, could grind 120 bu. of grain daily. Stone burrs were replaced with iron rollers in 1894, improving output and quality, and representing peak technological development for a local flour mill. Several owners operated mill before changes in marketing and consumer habits, coupled with reduced local grain supply, forced closing in 1930.
 
Erected 1984 by West Virginia Department of Culture and History.
