Inscription.  Completed in 1881 and originally named Lincoln Mills, it struggled to be successful until purchased by S. H. Baughman in 1892. Joined by his brothers, Jim and John, and brother-in-law, Walter McKinney, it became J. H. Baughman & Co. The mill ground grain in to flour, meal, and feed for livestock. it operated until John Baughman, Jr. retired in 1969. The mill contains logs from Kentucky's first steam mill, Buffalo Mill, ca. 1848, and has always stood as a dominant town figure from its location above Main Street. Its piercing whistle once served as a signal for miles around Stanford, letting workers, farmers, and townspeople know it was time for a meal.
