At the Neligh Mill the daily grind resulted in a useful product: flour.

Sift through the story of milling in Nebraska and tour a mill with its original 1880s equipment still intact! The Neligh Mill is a surviving reminder of the grist mills that once dotted Nebraska's landscape. Explore the mill, restored mill office, reconstructed flume and penstock, and the remains of the mill dam. Museum displays explain the history of the Neligh Mill and provide information about other water-powered mills once located throughout Nebraska and the Midwest. Publications available for purchase at the Neligh Mill include the Neligh Mill Cookbook, Water Powered Mills in Nebraska, and a self-guided tour book of the Neligh Mill.
