Zartman’s Mill

Aka Lexington Mill

The first mill at this location was built by Jacob Stauffer in 1758. That mill was replaced in 1775 by Christian Stauffer. In 1864, the mill was owned by Edward L. Kreider and from 1875 to 1899 it was owned by E. B. Brubaker. The original four-story mill was destroyed by fire in the 1920s and replaced with a three-story mill. It was known as Zartman’s mill as early as 1921. In 1969, the mill was owned and operated by E. Forry Zartman who acquired the mill from his father, Eli K. Zartman, who died in 1941. The mill produced flour for pretzel factories. By 1987 it was being used for storage. In 2021, it was in good condition and appears to be used for storage.

The mill is located at 100 Zartman Mill Road, Lititz, PA.
