Jacob Kauffman was the owner from 1822 to 1835, and Anna Kauffman from 1837 to 1875, and A. G. Kauffman in 1899. Paul Flory purchased the mill shortly after 1900. The mill was operated by Paul Flory in 1969, closed in the 1980s, and in 1994 contained offices and shops. The mill is in very good condition.
