Centerville Flour Mill

1442 Garfield Road, Mount Joy, PA

(Lord 48-02) The history of this mill is a little unsure because it seems to have been confused with another mill downstream. This mill appears to have been built by Martin Greider in 1804. The mill was owned in 1864, 1875, and 1899 by John H. Moore. The mill closed in 1905 after a fire and Martin A. Moore was the last to operate the mill. The current structure is built upon the rear part of the original mill and is currently being used to generate electricity.
