Stover-Myers Mill

The Stover-Myers Mill is a watermill located on the Tohickon Creek in Bedminster Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The mill was built around 1800 and operated continuously until 1955. The mill was built by Jacob Stover and it used a millstone to grind flour and feed for livestock using power from a waterwheel. The mill was also equipped with an up-and-down saw and it operated as a lumbermill. Later, the mill was renovated by Christian Myers in 1885. With the advent of steam power, the mill was eventually augmented with a steam engine. Milling of flour ceased in 1920, primarily due to competition from Mid-Western states, and the mill closed in 1955. The property was purchased by Bucks County in 1967 and the mill currently resides in a 26-acre (110,000 m2) park that is open to the public.
