Description

Grover Grammer bought the old Hagler's Mill on Binion Creek in north Tuscaloosa County in the 1940s before electricity was available. The mill had been built by Edward Hagler in 1866.

Grammar ran the mill by water power, grinding corn meal, sawing and planing lumber, welding, crushing feed and more. An accident at the mill claimed his life in 1964 when he was 71 years old.

The old mill burned in 1968, before the site was flooded for the construction of Lake Tuscaloosa.
