Significance: Simpsonville Mill is significant as a surviving eighteenth century mill with associated features. The Simpsonville Mill was an important local industry in Howard County, and its history reflects the changing economy of the County. It is unusual in its function as both a textile and a grist mill during the nineteenth century. The mill is also locally significant because of its associations with Owings and Simpson families and its role as the commercial center of the hamlet of Simpsonville.
