Long Description:

A first grist mill driven by the waters of the Stanislaus river was built in this location in 1854. It was destroyed with everything else in town during the Great Flood of 1862.

It was rebuilt in 1863 by David Tulloch and was used as a mill until the turn of the century, when it was turned into a power station.

Today, there are only ruins left. The mill and other remnants, including two millstones are part of a guided walk in Knights Ferry Recreation Area.
