Craft’s mill was originally a saw-mill, and in 1840 James Blair erected a grist-mill on the site, which he operated about fifteen years, and then sold to Washington Ewers. Elias Craft bought out Ewers in 1865, and put in an extra pair of buhrs. The mill is now owned and operated by W. H. and A. L. Craft. It is situated on Owl creek on the northwest quarter of section twenty-two.
