Chickies Roller Mill

Aka Donegal Mill

Christian Haldeman built this mill in 1837. Haldeman died in 1841 and the mill was purchased by John Baker. Baker owned it at least through 1883. In 1899, the “old grist mill” was owned by the Theological Seminary of Lancaster. During part of that time it was owned by Dr. John S. Simons. Later, it was converted into apartments. In 2011, it was purchased by Keith Brodfuehrer, who is using it as a private residence.

The mill is located at 1480 Long Lane, Columbia, PA.
