Ever wonder about that tall, beautiful red structure on Big Island Highway? It?s the historic Big Otter Mill (formerly Forbes Mill) and it is finally undergoing the restoration it deserves.
The Mill was built in the 1920s and served the community until the end of the 1940s. It is both a grist mill and roller mill. When the milling operations ceased in 1949, the doors were closed and all the original equipment was left inside. Remarkably all of this is still intact. The Mill is on the National Historic Register.
