The sign verbiage is not completely accurate regarding the mill. There were two mill locations. The first mill was built by John Wagoner (my ancestor), circa 1830. However, the first mill was not destroyed by fire and is not where the stone foundation exists today. The first mill was located about a ¼ mile north of the second mill location on property I presently own. All evidence of the first mill location was apparently removed when the 1913 flood changed the path of the Wildcat Creek to where the first mill’s race way was located. The second mill was destroyed by fire in 1929 a few years after my grandfather operated it.
