    Barnards Mill

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was an early Texas gristmill which was constructed by Charles Barnard in 1860. The original mill was a three story building built like a fort to try and withstand Indian attacks.

    In 1895 a cotton gin annex was added. During the 1940’s a hospital wing was built and a second level was added to the existing cotton gin annex. During the years from 1943 to 1971, this building functioned as a hospital.
