Tyrone Mills        

          Offered Val & Pete Walmsley

       The information comes from owner Robert Shafer  


The Tyrone Mill was built in 1846 in order to supply the local market with a place for the farmers to sell their wheat and to supply them with flour. During the 1850?s and 1860?s flour was shipped to Great Britain and the United States.  As markets and local agriculture changed, the mill moved into feed milling as its main business.  In the late 1950?s, as the feed mill business declined, a  sawmill was added along with woodworking. This enabled the mill to stay in business until the current owners, France and Robert Shafer, bought it in 1979.
