Significance: The mill was built to use electric power from the North Highlands dam of the Columbus Power Company which was built at the same time. The turbines were wired to motors which turned a rope drive in the mill. The combination of power transmission media is a meter of the state of the art electrical utilization in 1900-1910. Conversion from line shafting and belting to individual electric motor drive which began in 1934 is not yet complete.
