History of the Farm
Butts Mill Farm was established in the 1830's. Based on our research, the Smith family purchased the tract of land from the State at .50 cents per acre.
The Smith family built a Grist Mill and later added a cotton gin. The Grist Mill provided local people a place to bring their corn and ground into corn meal, flour, grits or, the entire cob could be ground into feed for animal food. The water-wheel was used as the source of energy for the grinding.
The Butts Mill family bought the farm around the 1900's and began running the farm at that time, thus the name Butts Mill Farm has been passed down through the years. Some of the Butts family still live in the community today.
The Butts ran the farm until the great flood of the 1940's. At that time, changes in the economy caused the farm to sit idle and then, due to the growing number of local stores, the farm was closed. The mill sat closed for approximately 50 years until it was purchased by Neil and Trish Leichty who fully restored the mill to its original form.
These facts about the history of the farm have been gathered from personal conversations with locals, 2 separate local archives, and of course Neil and Trish Leichty's own experience as the present owners of Butts Mill Farm
