Significance: The Standard mill is significant as an intact example of the "model California stamp mill" that developed from the flowering of nineteenth-century developments in mining and milling technologies in the wake of the California gold rush. The building represents the standard form of the California stamp mill, and it houses the full array of equipment that exemplified stamp-milling practice at the turn of the twentieth century.
