Historical SiteThis variable pitch water wheel was installed in the Long Tom River in 1906 to power the grain & flour machinery at the Adam Wilhelm Flour Mill. It also powered an electric generator that was later installed to provide electricity to the mill & the Wilhelm and Son's department store at 5th & commercial until 1925 when Mountain States brought electricity to Monroe.
