Significance: Hildebrand's Mill, turn of the century successor to the original 1845 mill, is one of the few remaining in Oklahoma which were provided for by treaty with the United States. As part of the compensation for the removal of 1839 and earlier removals from the East, mills came under the list of improvements which were due compensation. The site of numerous dramatic episodes of local history, the structure is fully equipped and operable as both saw- and grist-mill, some of the equipment dating back to the first mill.
