Grist Mill


Grist Mill


Black and white image of a four story grist mill on a river. It is impossible to tell if the mill is functional or damaged. Museum records suggest this could be a mill in the Yamhill County, but such mills would have been common sites around Washington County in the days before there were many roads to transport crops around the area. This photo was part of the Herbert McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who, in addition to taking his own photographs, collected images that depicted daily life in the area.
