Title Mount Pleasant Roller Mill
Description From that appropriate pipe we received ten sacks of flour. Daddy put that into our wagon along with a sack of graham for cereal. We also loaded several sacks of bran, and crushed oats for animal feed. Our business at the mill was completed. We crossed the bridge again and were soon on our way home. We put the animal grains in the granary. The sacks of flour were carried upstairs and stored behind three sacks left over fron last year. These three sacks would be used first. All the flour was stacked on a platform of boards which rested on eight five-gallon honey cans. The slick sides of the cans made it impossible for mice to climb to the flour. We felt secure now. Our supply of flour would last for months. It was evident that even in the 1920's, there was concern for food storage. Daddy was adamant that we should have a year's supply of flour on hand. This was made feasible through the opera-tion of the Mount Pleasant Roller Mill. Source: Personal recollections of the author. -133-
