Along with many other sights we no longer see, old grist mills are a part of vanishing America. Prone to fires, particularly after being outmoded and abandoned, many of the old mills are no longer standing. This Erie Canal Mill was built in 1855. The same family has owned the mill since 1900 and it is still in operation today.
