This former gristmill, built by Lewis Shuey between 1844 and 1845, stands on the site of an earlier mill built in 1806 by Philip Gunckel, founder of Germantown. A miller by trade, Gunckel led a party of settlers from Pennsylvania to Montgomery County in 1804 and settled here because the location was excellent for milling. Gunckel platted Germantown in 1814 and operated a gristmill and a sawmill on this site until 1830 when he sold the mills to Lewis Shuey, his son-in-law, who rebuilt and improved them.
