Eastern Washington's Vanished Gristmills


Category: History: U.S.: Washington State

Florence E. Sherfey


Copyright/published Year: 1978 by Ye Galleon Press


ISBN: 087770208X


Binding: CLOTH

This book contains fascinating accounts of the old water powered gristmills built before 1900. Gristmills were the fore runners of the vast flour milling industry. In the 1800s a gristmill was a necessity, with one standing by a stream of water in nearly every settlement throughout Eastern Washington. This book is more than a chronicle of gristmills of an earlier day. It brings them and the folks living then into a nostalgic focus in stories about them lively with interest and appeal.
