The mill dates to 1886, when Jim McCaskill purchased and installed machinery for the mill. The mill produced soft wheat flour and provided a place for farmers to have their wheat ground without having to travel. The Summersville Mill is located just east of the Summersville square.
The Summersville Mill has undergone a huge restoration in the last few years, thanks to the Revitalization and Action Board of Summersville and the many volunteers from the community who have worked on the project. Summersville Mill was awarded 4th Place in the 2009 Community Betterment category. Visitors to the website can view photos of the project on the gallery page.
Today the mill is used for special events. Picnic tables and a pavilion are located on the grounds. A pond is available for catch and release fishing. Tours of the mill are available upon request, at no charge; however, donations are gladly accepted.
