Civil War veteran Ed Damp helped build this gristmill in 1870. The force of the water turned a large wheel that helped grind wheat between rocks, turning it into flour. In March of 1883, the Rocky River flooded destroying much of the original mill. Ed Damp sold the mill in 1906, and another flood completely destroyed the mill in 1913. You can still see the foundation below.
