Commissioned in 1893 and brought back into action in 2021, the mill is producing stone-ground flour again for the first time since 1945.
The only commercially active watermill in South Africa. Flour available for purchase.
In 1997 the community rallied around the building and fixed the doors, windows and donated artefacts to fill the museum which opened in December 1999.
