The Waterwheel, invented centuries ago, was the first mechanical device used to harness power. It even powered early Ford manufacturing plants in this region. Gristmills were used to make various flours and cornmeal. Sawmills were used to produce lumber. This water-powered mill replica was built by Taylor citizens in a volunteer effort.
