Comprehensive History[edit | edit source]

The Kister Mill was built in 1816 by John Nimmon. It is located in Millbrook, Ohio just a mile east of State Route 3 south of Wooster on County Road 34 (Kister Rd.) where it intersects with Route 83, in Plain Township. The mill utilized water power from springs, coming from as far away as Springville, to saw logs into usable lumber boards, to grind grain into flour, to press apples for cider, and weave wool into cloth. By 1976 the Mill was still performing all of this duties except weaving. The Kister Mill was named a National Historical Landmark in 1974. This was the oldest industry in Wayne County still in operation before it was shutdown.
