Independence, Iowa Wapsipinicon Water-Powered Mill Restoration
Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area hired Trillium Dell to assess flood-related damage to three Iowa Grist Mills. TD subsequently worked closely with the Buchanan County Historical Society, Owner of the Wapsipinicon Mill, and F.E.M.A.. This collaborative effort resulted in the successful granting of both remediation and mitigation funding from F.E.M.A. Over the years, the structural integrity of the meal floor system had been disrupted, allowing original historic timbers to float down the river during each flood of the Wapsipinicon River. TD was then hired to remove all the non-historic fabric, and to re-establish the structural integrity of the original timber floor system. New timbers and flooring is white oak, which was the original species used due to its rot resistance.
