Artist's Description

Creating a millpond required the building of a dam to flood upstream land. The Wisconsin Territorial Legislature enacted legislation enabling the dam in1840.

Built along the dells of Bridge Creek, the base of the mill was carved into the sandstone bedrock. Massive hand-hewn timbers secured with wooden pegs make up the structure of the mill. Water turbines powered the milling process. A concrete dam replaced the original log structure in 1919. Dells Mill, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, operated continuously until 1968.

Dells Mill in Augusta Wisconsin.
