Mill Grove Fayette Co IA
The Kaufman family built one of the very early mills in Fayette Co, Iowa, in 1851/52 on Brush Creek, about two miles south of Wadena, Iowa. Jacob Kaufman also owned considerable hill/timber land to the west of the mill area. An early pioneer village/neighborhood with a school, P.O., craftsman, merchant, sprang up around this location and was known as Mill Grove. The mill and farm was sold to the Philander Rawson family about 1867. The Rawson's ran the mill site until it was abandoned in the early 1900's. The area supplied lumber for much of the area and their 'yards' in Volga, Wadena, Arlington. Initially the mill was a water mill, with an early steam engine being brought in by the late 1850's. Both steam and water were used for sawing lumber. The water mill was flooded out several times and not rebuilt after the mid 1860's, after which steam became the power source. Wood supplied the fuel for the steam engine. It was at the Kaufman Mill that the Hopson family came down the Brush Creek valley from the prairie of Smithfield Twp to acquire wood and clay for their pottery operation. The Kaufman/Rawson farm thus also would then have a pottery kiln located upon it, plus brick making. iowaz@swbell.net or iowaz@hotmail.com
