Tipp City Roller Mill
“While some people dream by night, others dream by night” is part of the motivation of a team of committed Tipp City residents soon to embark on a seemingly monumental task. Through combining their talents, resources and connections they plan on repainting and restoring the Tipp Roller Mill, constructed in 1837, as part of the 175th Anniversary of Tipp City Celebration, to some of its original beauty.
