First Flour Ground at the Mill

Following an additional ten months of diligent effort, the mill reached its culmination and proudly bore the moniker “Daley and Emory Butte Creek Mills.” On the memorable date of August 30, 1873, the first batch of wheat underwent the transformation into flour, marking the commencement of operations. Swiftly gaining momentum, within a mere few weeks, the mill churned out flour to meet the demands of its eager clientele, achieving an impressive output of up to 40 barrels per day.
