MILL HISTORY
    

The Historic Grafton Mill has a rich and colorful past. Built in 1884 along the banks of the Milwaukee River, it originally served as a gristmill producing White Lily brand flour. During its peak the mill turned out over 100 barrels of flour per day. In later years the mill turned to the lucrative business of manufacturing worsted wool. The Badger Mills continued to produce and card wool until the early 1960s. Today anyone with a keen eye can still detect wool fibers leaching from the riverbanks. A more apparent vestige of the woolen mill days is the Grafton Yarn Store, which still operates as a specialty yarn store in its original location. The rest of the three-story building has had many reincarnations over the years. Today along with the Grafton Yarn Store, the old mill is home to a growing community of artists.
