Summary

Significance: Womack's Mill, constructed in 1909, is the only flour mill still standing in Caswell County. The mill dam was constructed in 1826 and is intact. The mill was designed for one run of stones and four wheat roller mills. Most of the original corn and wheat processing machinery is still in place. Womack's Mill served a local corn and wheat economy until operations ceased about 1955.
