Bridgeton Mill - Exterior

Bridgeton Mill - Mill Facing the Raccoon River

Five Levels of the Mill

The lowest level is the foundation where the head race flows from the left into and out of the mill in the arched openings to the right of this photo.

The 2nd level (above the foundation) holds the doors to get to the gates on the left side of the buiding. The 2nd level also houses the trolley car motor that electrifies the mill stones and all the gearing, pulleys and belts to drive the power to the stones. The 2nd level is also considered subterranian on the back side of this photo. The stone walls crumbled and have since been rebuilt by the current owner Mike Roe.

The 3rd level opens the entrance door on the opposite side of this photo. The 3rd level is where you will find the buhr stones and other milling equipment as well as the storee where they sell a great number of various ground grains.

The 4th & 5th levels hold various types of milling equipment.
