Stanislaus River Grist Mill
AKA Tulloch's Mill
Covered Bridge Road
Knights Ferry
Built 1863

Stanislaus River Grist Mill contributes to the Knights Ferry Historic District.

The 1936 photographs are from the Historical American Buildings Survey.

An informational plaque at the site reads:

Tulloch's Mill

In the late 1850's, David Locke built Knights Ferry's first flour mill. It was destroyed by the flood of 1862, and a new mill was built here by David Tulloch.

A dam upstream diverted water to a water wheel which turned the millstone.

Before the turn of the century, Charles Tulloch, David's son, converted the flour mill into a hydroelectric plant. This plant provided electrical power for the surrounding countryside until the late 1920's.
