Shanks for the Memories

Shanks Mill  is one of the oldest mills in the state. Although its roots actually originate in Maryland.  Built in 1764, Shanks Mills is still standing today.  A working Grain Mill until the late 1970’s, Shanks Mills has a history rich in activity.  When it was built it was actually in the state of Maryland, but when King George the 3rd order a line be drawn between Pa and Md to settle disputes that changed.  It became a formal proclamation in 1774 thanks to Mason and Dixon Surveyors and Penn Proprietors.
