SANDY WALKER WRITES
A Working Water-powdered Mill
Suber’s Corn Mill was built circa 1908 and still uses water power to grind shelled corn into meal. The mill was built by Walter Suber, and has remained in the Suber family for 4 generations. The mill buildings are original, with a few updates. Suber's Corn Mill is currently open for business from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each Saturday. Before social distancing and other limitations from the coronavirus ourbreak, the friendly folks accommodated visitors and gave tours to groups who scheduled visits. To see about the possibility of future tours, you can contact them through their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SubersCornMill/.
The short videos below show 1) water turning the huge wheel attached to the side of the mill, and 2) the corn being ground into meal. The whole process takes relatively little time, but it requires lots of water power. Mr. Suber knows facts and figures about the size of the wheel, the amount of water it needs, and how much meal can be ground in a certain length of time. I have always found him to be very willing to share what he knows.
