Beck’s Mill





After more than a year of renovations Beck's Mill will open to the public the weekend of September 20 and 21st. Beck's mill is located in rural Washington county in Indiana at 38 32.214 N, 86 09.290 W, southwest of Salem, IN. For a map of directions goto http://bp1.blogger.com/_O7M-FLlHxO0/RlhtEo4RumI/AAAAAAAAAB4/ZT_4v_ommi0/s1600-h/map.jpg. The mill was raised from the foundation and the foundation was accurately repaired. The waterwheel and two turbines were repaired as well as the flume. New siding and a roof were put on the building. For views of how the mill looked prior to renovation read my blog at: http://historicalmills.blogspot.com/2007/05/becks-mill.html.
