Shortly after the turn of the century the mill began concentrating on rye and selling its product on a national market. The business closed in 1969 due to changes in transportation, but was briefly reopened in 1979 as a private museum. The collection documents day-to-day operations of the firm's last 25 years including purchase of grain from local producers; flour sales to eastern bakers and brokers; maintenance and repair of the dam and milling equipment; purchase of supplies and pest management services; financial and production record keeping; and developing new markets such as flour sales to E. I. Dupont & Company for use in dynamite manufacturing. The records consist of correspondence, routine financial and operational records, a history by Polly Athan and a small amount of historical background, and oral history interviews with former owner Don Fallgatter and two employees. Although few of the financial and operational records are complete they provide representative documentation.
