Myers Mill

Aka Stauffer’s Mill

David Whitman had a grist, saw, hemp, and fulling mill at this site as early as 1779. Christian Stauffer acquired the mill about 1795 and in 1802 replaced the first mill with a 2.5 story stone mill, 40 x 60 feet. Christian Stauffer died in 1835, and was succeeded by his son, John Stauffer. John’s son Peter took over the mill in turn. John Buckwalter bought the property in 1870 and improved and enlarged the mill in 1878. In 1899 the mill was sold to A. K. Denlinger. Wayne I. Groff purchased the mill in 1915 and sold it to R. W. Myers in 1920. The mill closed in 1924. The mill is in very good condition and is used as a residence.

The mill is located at 562 Beechdale Road, Bird-in-Hand, PA.
