Inscription.  

One of the earliest businesses in Chillicothe vicinity, this mill ground cracked grains for local needs in the 1860s. The mill was operated by a water wheel on the Thompson River. From the mill came bakers' flour as well as feed for livestock. Water power fell out of use in the late 1800s, Graham's Mill ceased operation by 1910 and was torn down in the 1940s. The covered bridge collapsed in 1944.
