The site operated off and on until April 1993 when it was determined that the wooden waterwheel and attached mechanical components were too deteriorated to run safely. As a result, Peirce Mill ceased operating. Currently, it is estimated that $1,000,000 will be required to rehabilitate and reconstruct the waterwheel and mechanical components necessary to operate the mill. Currently the Friends of Peirce Mill are working with us to raise the needed funds and supply volunteer help to preserve the mill.
