Letter: Mill was across from Fairplay Store

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
I didn't see any response to Trilby Vance's question about the building across the road ( 704) from my Dad's store. Perhaps she and I are the only ones left who recall that building. Of course it was a grist mill where folks would bring 'turns" of corn to the mill on Saturday to be ground into meal. As I recall, the mill operator charged ten cents to grind the "turn" or he would take a toll box of corn. The miller would grind the toll corn to sell to those who didn't have corn to bring. I have never determined why it was a "turn". Perhaps Mike Watson can help.

My first recollection was of Mr. Tom Bennett running the mill, followed by Oscar Graves, Simpson Wheat and Lorn Keith. Dad sold almost no meal because nearly everyone brought corn to the mill. I deeply regret that I don't have a photograph of the old mill. --Dave
