The mill was built around 1800 and operated continuously until 1955. The mill was built by Jacob Stover and it used a millstone to grind flour and feed for livestock using power from a waterwheel. The mill was also equipped with an up-and-down saw and it operated as a lumbermill. Later, the mill was renovated by Christian Myers in 1885. With the advent of steam power, the mill was eventually augmented with a steam engine. Milling of flour ceased in 1920, primarily due to competition from Mid-Western states, and the mill closed in 1955. The property was purchased by Bucks County in 1967 and the mill currently resides in a 26-acre (11 ha) park that is open to the public.
