Photographer's Note

In 1820 the Durham Grist Mill was built on the foundation of the Durham Ironworks. The ironworks was used to supply cannon and cannonshot to the Continental Army during the American Revolution in the late 1700's.

The grist mill is in a marvelous state of preservation and one can still view the machinery that for years was used to grind flour there. The brand name of the flour that was ground there was called "Ceresota Flour". In its heyday it was in demand as far away as Philadelphia and New York.

The mill ceased its operation in 1967, and is now a registered historical site owned by Durham Township.
