Visitors can view an example of the ground breaking, fully automated milling system invented by Oliver Evans in 1790 which moved grain and flour through all steps of the milling process without manual labor, in a system of buckets, conveyors and chutes. Evans received U.S. Patent #3 for his invention, which was the first fully automated industrial process in America.
Guided tours with the Miller are available for groups of 6-20 people. Please see “Group Tours” for more information.
