“From Wheat to Flour – Lowell’s History in Milling”.
From its earliest beginnings, the gristmill has been a significant part of the fabric and history of this community. Lowell’s waterways and its bountiful wheat crops have played a central part in developing the needed cooperation between farming and industry, urban and rural and township and City.
Lowell is also fortunate to have one of only five gristmills left in the state of Michigan, which is also the oldest continually operating mill in the state.
This exhibit explores the history milling in Lowell.
