West Point Mill is a reproduction and memorial of a historic gristmill that once stood along the Eno River in Durham, North Carolina. It was one of the many mills that has once stood along the banks of the river, and is the most notable of the lot.
The original West Point Mill operated for quite a long time. It has been on the site from 1778 until 1942. Most say that its excellent location made it possible for it to function a lot longer and more successfully than the other mills on the banks. However, the most notable thing about it is that it has become a vital center for a community of 300 families that surrounded it.
The original mill collapsed in 1973 from old age and neglect. It was reproduced through the use of photographs and materials from other local grist mills. It is currently a part of the West Point on the Eno park.
