Curdsville Mill in the 20th Century

When Jim Berry wrote his article, “Curdsville Mill At Least a Century Old,” T. A. Harris was the owner of Curdsville Mills. Mr. Harris recalled coming to the mill as “a youngster and watching the sifter in operation.”

His brother, B. E. Harris, pictured above was the miller. The old wooden wheels had been replaced by sturdier steel. The water power, however, still came from the Willis River.

The mill’s dam was built by Farmville’s Taylor Manufacturing Company. According to Berry, “The area between the dam and the mill is a favorite fishing hole of many Curdsville residents and abounds with flatback, bream and pike.”
