Significance: Boshell's Mill is of local significance in the development of Walker County. It was typical of the small scale industry supporting construction when Townley was a thriving coal mining town around the turn of the century. It also illustrates the transfer of technology, having been equipped with efficient water turbines of advanced design in an isolated rural setting.
