The Gristmill

Early pioneers would travel from far and wide to visit the gristmill for the essential service of having their grain ground. Communities often developed in areas where gristmills had been built. In The Gristmill young readers will find out how the miller produced flour, the staple of life, as well as learn many facts, such as how wheat becomes bread, where the gristmill was located and why it was a necessary part of the community and the job of the millers.
