Cedar Hill Mill sits on a location that has held a mill since 1847. The current mill was constructed by the Radeacker family.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of this mill is its precarious setting atop a riverbank, below a large dam that funneled water into the mill.
The dam is now broken, probably intentionally after the closing of the mill, and the water comes crashing through the hole, creating a dramatic scene.
My family and I will never forget, some twenty-five years ago, watching some drunk people in an inner-tube ride over the break in the dam, seriously injuring one of them when the inner-tube capsized.
