original writing exposed

MacGyver and Monster Mill mate Marty tore down the add-on Friday to expose the original writing of the Mill. It said Denmark Flour Mills & Elevator–Albert Schornichka Proprietor. Guess who gets to fill in the lost lettering? macgyver-and-martythe-original-writing-exposedthe-mill

visitor to the mill

Had a visit from the grandson of the original owner of our Mill and house (built in 1909) He told us his childhood memories of summers at the house and helping at the Mill. His insights into the original architectural layouts of the house and mill are priceless. He promises to find pictures for us to post. He was able to help us piece some history together about these awesome structures. As we tear down an add-on, we are discovering the original lettering from the early 1900’s…wouldn’t it be cool to put that back on?
