(Lord 43-10) The first mill was a small mill built of wood of 1.5 stories by Jacob Denlinger. In 1834 Henry Rohrer purchased from the Denlinger’s the earlier small frame mill which was then taken possession of by his son, Christian Rohrer, in 1852 and who replaced the old mill with a new brick mill in c 1852 and then it was enlarged (at the east end of the building) in 1879 when an engine was installed.
