In 1823, the grist mill and general store were the heart of the Fall River community in the Clear Creek Valley. The mill and store prospered, the settlement grew, and soon two churches were built, and a one-room school opened. Other businesses began and thrived, a blacksmith shop, tannery, timber sawmill, sorghum mill and a cemetery as the peaceful valley grew. It even had its country doctor. For the next 195 years, the mill, general store and the home place served many needs. In addition to the mill grinding wheat, corn and livestock feed, the general store served as a post office, restaurant, operating theatre, judges’ courtroom, voting place, and political speaking place. It was also an auto filling station, and hardware store. It had a library. It was the center for boxing matches, horseshoe pitching tournaments, checkers tournaments; circuit church and almost everything else one could imagine.
