summer morning in 1852, Fred Graue entered his mill and turned
the wheel that opened the sluice gates outside. Water from
Salt Creek rushed into the millrace and the wooden waterwheel
began to turn for the first time. It would turn the machinery
that would grind grain for the next seventy years.
Today, Graue Mill is the only operating waterwheel gristmill
in the Chicago area.
