Inscription.  Still standing, Hill's Mill is on 40 acres of land owned by the Hill family since before 1873. It was operated by Louis Hill until 1905 and by Josiah Hill from 1906 until 1910. Although it changed hands several times over the next 34 years, it returned to the Hill family in 1944 and operated as late as 1955. The mill served as a focal point for the community to visit, often fishing and swimming in the pond. Corn was ground in a grist mill, cotton was ginned, and lumber and shingles were sawn, all using the power generated by the water flowing from the pond and over the water wheel. Commissioned by the Hill family and dedicated to Lucile and Theron Hill.

The land where the mill still stands today was in the Hill family since before Slaughter Hill sold the land to Louis & Elbert Hill (1873). Slaughter, Louis, and Elbert were all brothers, sons of Archibald Hill & Samantha Barfield Hill of Taylor County. (Submitted on May 29, 2021, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
