About The Mills of Iowa County
The nearly 450 page book covers the history of 40 flour mills, most of which were water powered, 57 feed mills, 21 sorghum mills, numerous flour stores, and a flax and woolen mill just to round out the story. Learn how these mills were built and operated over time under changing financial conditions and turbulent weather events. Newspaper articles, genealogy histories, and a multitude of court cases reveal the history of milling in its early days when a swift water power and a sharp mill stone provided the precious wheat, rye, and corn products needed by the early settlers.
