This old grist mill is in the town of Parshallville between Brighton and Fenton. Built in 1869. it was purchased by Tom Walker and John Browning for $10,000 in 1878. It was owned by the Walker family for three generations until Tom Walker’s grandson also named Tom Walker retired in 1969. It was one of the last water-powered grist mills in Michigan. It is now a cider mill and is a popular spot in the fall for cider and doughnuts.
It is about a mile west of US-23. I have been down that stretch of highway countless times and never knew this old mill was in Parshallville. I need to go back in the fall for some doughnuts and cider.
