The Pickwick Mill, built from 1856-1858, is one of the oldest water powered gristmills found in southeastern Minnesota. Construction is of locally quarried limestone, with a timber frame so closely fit nails were not used. The mill ran 24 hours a day producing 100 barrels daily for the Civil War Union Army. After the war it became a flour mill. Today the mill is an historic site and open to the public to visit.
