The Fitz Water
Wheel Company's Restoration of Peirce Mill
It is a great drawing, but it does not provide information such as: what
was in the mill at the time of restoration, and what they installed that
came from other mills of the same time period. The Fitz Water Wheel Company
was known for doing things that would work and function over being totally
historically accurate. The one problem with be totally historically accurate
to a period, is that on paper it may not be practical or be able to function
correctly. The millers of today and yesterday did adaptions to the work
of the millwrights. Millwrights did not know how to make flour, or operate
a mill, this was a skill only of the miller. So the Fitz Company would be
as historically accurate as possible with the results being a mill that
a miller could operate.
