Title Union Roller Mills - Fairview
Description Bishop Hansen was alone again with the mill and operated it until 1922, when he moved to Salt Lake City. It should be noted here that his service to the people of Fairview, as a miller, including time with his father, covered a period of fifteen years at this time. These were his prise years and it can well be said of him, that he labored faithfully and hard in the service of the industry and the people of his home town. He will always be remembered as Fairviews most prominent miller and the industry's greatest benefactor. as Bishop Hansen left the mill, a new lease was effected to Oscar Lundberg, which lasted only a few months. It should be recalled here that to be a successful miller, a man must have the know-how of making flour. Whether this is the reason for the short duration of this lease is unknown to the writer. However, following this broken lease, the mill (now the "old mill") stood idle and in effect its death had come. The few remaining articles within its walls were plundered a lit-tle later by men who were working on the new highway between Fairview and Mt. Pleasant. The highway was being constructed by team outfits who used the building and grounds for camp headquarters. Belts and other equipment were taken by these men to repair their harnesses and equipment until there was nothing of value left. About 1930, following nearly fifty years of faithfulness in feeding the people of Fairview, the property was sold to Andy Peterson, who used it for slaughtering purposes. Shortly thereafter, he tore the building down and used the materials as he saw fit. However, the "Old Mill " home is still standing, but has not been occupied for many years, perhaps not since the time the Brady family left it in 1908.
