September 12, 2005   GOODBYE OLD MILL INN.

Old Mill Inn burns to the ground.  Looks like a total loss.   

GRAND OPENING WAS 31 YEARS AGO TODAY AND TOM SPENCER'S BAND PLAYED.  KENT FARLEY WAS THERE.  Photos forwarded to us by Mark Spencer.

 

Historic Building Burns in Newton What had become a landmark in Newton/Jasper County is now a loss for not just its owners, Frank and Diane Ayers, but the community. Flames shot from the building in the early morning hours of Monday, September 12. The Wade Fire District, assisted by the Olney Fire Department, received the call around 6:00 a.m. and was on the scene shortly thereafter. The Old Mill, originally a grist mill, was built in 1857. The Ayers would have celebrated 31 years there Tuesday. See the Newton Press Mentor September 15 issue for more details. (Photo by Vanette King)
