Graue Mill and Museum
An operating waterwheel grist mill and homestead is the only operating waterwheel gristmill in the Chicago area. The mill, a major center of economic life during the 19th century, was used by Fred Graue to hide runaway slaves on the Underground Railroad on their way to Canada. Graue, who immigrated from Germany, operated the mill for 70 years until modern milling methods made the old mill obsolete and the mill was abandoned. The Frederick Graue House stands adjacent to Graue Mill and Museum and was built for the Graue family, between 1858 and 1859. In 1975, Graue Mill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in 1981, it was recognized as an Illinois Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
