​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.

Grist Mill News

​​​​​​​In 2011, it was with sadness that we had to close the grist mill. There just wasn't enough business to keep a small flour mill
​ operating.

But, because of our love for all things old we decided to turn the grist mill into a mail order business specializing in old fashioned items for the family, home and farm.
We will be gradually adding Made In American products through the grist mill's website so check back with us from time to time.


Brand New!

     We are very pleased to announce that we are now carrying the fabulous Ida & Mamie's Organic Complexion Cream. One of our Indiana customers recently commented that in 50 years she had never experienced a moisturizing complexion cream like it! One of our customers in Kentucky stated that when she uses the cream pimples and breakouts clear up.

It's listed on our Organic Cosmetics page. Take a look!
