The original Hanover Grist Mill was located one mile south of Morristown, Indiana on Big Blue river in Shelby county, Hanover township. It was the largest flour mill ever built in the county. It was one of the best equipped mills in the state at that time. It was built for Alexander Cory around 1850 and continued in active operation until it burned down in 1885.

Out With The Old.....
About four years ago, it was with great sadness that we had to close the grist mill. There just wasn't enough business to keep a flour mill going.
In With The New!
We're planning to reopen the mill later this spring and though we won't be grinding flour and cornmeal, we will have available:
* Farm fresh eggs and honey,
* Raw milk
* Fresh breads and cheeses,
* Specialty coffees
* Premium deer feeds
* Specialty chicken feeders &
We'll post a Grand Reopening date in the coming weeks.
