The Wash House
The Wash House located on the Heller-Wagner Grist Mill grounds is the smallest stone structure overlooking the mill chase and ponds. This little gem of a house appears to have been built in the 1700’s and, along with a portion of the Grist Mill, most likely served as housing for early millers and their families.
Although not documented, it is possible business was once conducted on the lower level with the miller and/or his family dwelling on the upper level. It is now referred to as The Wash House, because after the construction of the Miller’s House in the 1800’s, it was utilized to wash sacks for the grain and possibly as the family’s wash house.
