A piece of Wyoming’s history is now gone, but not before residents had a chance to look back into the past. The owners of the Wyoming Grain and Feed slowly took down the mill which had been on the site since at least 1884.
Amateur historian Steve Loxton says the brick part of the mill seen here was not part of the original building since brick partially covers a window in the frame section of the building. It may date back as far as 1870 by the original owner Nathanel Boswell – the founder of Brigden. Loxton says the roof on the current building and those in the pictures is different because of a fire in 1910. The frame portion of the original Mustard Mill was destroyed at the time – the second of three. As far as Loxton knows, this is the last mill of that century in Lambton County.
