Unique Mill

Unique Mill is located in Friendsville, MD, which is in far western Maryland. The mill has been closed for a number of years and situated on the Maple St. (MD 42) within Friendsville. This mill was powered by electricity that was generated off a dam in a nearby stream (Youghioghemy River). The story that I was told is that this was one of the first electric mills in the area. The mill also sold electricity to the town. Most of the equipment was manufactured by the Unique mill company or least the equipment is marked with this name. Therefore, I am not sure about the name of the mill since it and the equipment are the same, so the individual that told me the name of the mill may have been mistaken.

Inside the mill most of the equipment is still in the building, including roller mills, sifters, air cleaners and baggers.

On the top of the mill is BP gas station sign.

The mill is closed to the public.
