Interior, Wapsipinicon Mill, Independence, Iowa

The interior of the Wapsipinicon Mill is very well preserved, and shows most of the original wood machinery that ground flour and functioned as other types of milling over the life of the building.

Of particular interest was a board that had once faced the interior of a grain shoot that had been worn smooth by millions of a pounds of grain sliding past it for generations. It was perfectly smooth to the touch.
