The Cedar Bluff Mill was built in 1869 by Joseph Perry, three miles north of Rossville on Cross Creek. Flour was manufactured there until the 1880s and later the mill was used for coarser products. The Pottawatomi Indians were the principal patrons as they brought their grist to be ground. Ben F. Reser purchased it about 1900 and ran it for many years. This photograph is provided through a pilot project to host unique cultural heritage materials from local libraries on Kansas Memory and was accomplished by mutual agreement between the Northeast Kansas Library System, the Rossville Community Library, and the Kansas Historical Society.

Date: Between 1870 and 1912
