Chills, Thrills, and Mills

The hulking brick forms of flour mills stand on riverbanks near older settlements throughout eastern and central North America. These were once the high-tech devices that provided the staff of life to their communities, and thus enjoyed a significance far beyond any single type of machine today. Theodore Hazen, who runs a company that specializes in restoring old mills, has gathered together a heterogeneous mass of material about flour mills, their history, and their restoration. The collection includes many articles written during the heyday of the mills, like Sylvester Graham's1837 treatise on bread, an early broadside on spiritual health food, and an extended analysis of the mill industry in Minneapolis in 1886, which should be read as a report from the cutting edge. Hazen himself provides a number of essays on various aspects of mill construction and operation. Step into this site and in a few hours you will be an expert on a subject you previously had not known existed.
