Roop’s Mill (MD-006-017)
This is a mill of the Oliver Evans design that was built in 1795 and owned and operated through the 1940s by the Roop family. All of the original wooden equipment and many other artifacts still remain in the building.
     
 
Shank’s Mill
Built in 1857, Shank’s Mill is still operational. Powered by a 25 ft. internal overshot wheel, the stones still produce corn meal. Since 1976, the mill has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
     
  Anderson’s Mill (PA-028-003)
The present structure was built in 1856 on the site of a previous mill. Two turbines drive the equipment of the mill plus produce electricity. The 36” buhr stone and the 22” attrition mill can be seen in operation.
     
  Clear Spring Mills (PA-038-019)
The present mill was built in 1889 and continued in operation until the 1940s. The current owners purchased the badly deteriorated structure in 1994 and began restoration on the exterior and first floor. The mill now houses a gift shop and gallery.
     
  Union Mills (MD-006-021). The 19th century industrial complex includes the Shriver Mill (aka Union Mill), with a restored wooden breast-shot wheel and gear train, and 48’ French buhr stones.
