BOONTON TOWNSHIP HISTORIANS WILL HEAR THE HISTORY OF GRAIN MILLING FROM COOPER GRISTMILL’S MASTER MILLER

 

L. Ivins Smith, Master Miller and historian will speak to the Historical Society of Boonton Township on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at 7:30 PM in the Township Municipal Building on Powerville Rd.  Mr. Smith is the Master Miller at the Cooper Gristmill, circa 1826, a facility of the Morris County Park Commission.  The history of milling will be presented with particular emphasis on Morris County mills and several mill sites located in Boonton Township.  A collection of slides will be shown including some recent photos of California mills strongly influenced by Russian settlers in the nineteenth century.

In 1826, a retired General Nathan Cooper built the four-story Cooper Gristmill that is standing today. Throughout the 19th century, the gristmill ground primarily wheat, but also corn, and other grains. With four sets of millstones connected by elevators to grain cleaners and flour sifters, the mill ground up to 10 tons of grain each day. This mill remained in operation until the early 20th century.  For additional information, call Dick Seabury, BoontonTownship Historical Society’s Program Chair, 973-335-1876.
