Significance: Grist milling has been continuous at the site since the City Mills were established in 1828. Some of the newer buildings house offices, equipment, and warehouses used in the production of feed. The corn mil, no longer used, was built by Horace King, a noted black builder and an ex-slave. Much equipment remains in place in the older buildings, including an intact hursting frame in the flour mill supporting seven run of grindstones. Other equipment in the flour mill, including a 50-year-old water turbine, is occasionally used. The history of the site well illustrates the relationship between the commercial and technological evolution of a company.
