This photograph shows a view of the Cedar Point Mill and Dam in Cedar Point, Kansas. The three and a half story native limestone structure was built in 1875 by abolitionist Orlo H. Drinkwater and his partner Peter Paul Schriver along the Cottonwood River in the community of Cedar Point. For a number of years flour was milled from the facility until operations came to a close in the early 1940s. In 2006 the site was nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: Between 1900 and 1920
