Inscription.  The Grist Mill at Wayne was originally built in 1828 by Abraham Trout who owned a large farm at the location. A natural waterfall powered the mill until Trout built a dam to provide more water power. In 1842, Wayne County was established, and the county seat was placed on Abraham Trout’s farm. The mill continued in operation for a century and was replaced with updated structures over the years. In 1928, a flood washed the building away for good and damaged the dam. In the mid-1930s, the WPA rebuilt the current dam.
