Cedarburg Grist Mill
The Cedarburg Grist Mill located on Bridge Street was built in 1827
by pioneers who came to Cedarburg in the late 160's forming the firm of
Deauvel, Ascher, and Spiller, who were in business about ten years.
The chief product of the mill was Pearl Barley for which the trio hoA
they could build a wide market among the people of America. Rye flour and
ground feed were also made. The barley business failed to win wide consure,
acceptance, and after ten years, the trio became discouraged and the propei
passed into the hands of a man named Thiel (Pfiel) who endeavored to carry
for about five years when fire almost destroyed the structure, and he aban(
it.
Pearl barley originated among the German people and was used for many
years as an article of food - for soups and filler for sausages.
