2014 $5.75 Glade Creek Grist Mill
Priority Mail
 
This stamp was issued to pay the priority mail rate. It pictures West Virginia’s Glade Creek Grist Mill and is part of the American Landmarks Series.
 
At the turn of the 20th century, over 500 mills dotted the banks of West Virginia’s rivers and streams. As time progressed so did industry, leaving traditional milling to history. But today, the Glade Creek Grist Mill offers a glimpse into the grain-grinding operations of days gone by.
 
Located in Babcock State Park, the mill is a replica of the old Cooper’s Mill that once stood nearby. Built in 1976, the fully operational mill seems relatively young, but its walls tell a different story. The structure was created using parts from defunct old mills from around the state. The basic structure came from a 19th-century gristmill, just a couple counties over. The waterwheel was salvaged from a burned-out mill near Petersburg, and other parts came from similar old mills in West Virginia.
 
The entire building radiates a sense of history. The rushing water of the creek turns the groaning waterwheel, powering the heavy grindstones. Just as it would have been done 100 years ago, a miller carefully monitors the delicate process from start to finish.
 
Some lucky mill guests might be able to purchase freshly milled cornmeal or buckwheat flour. But all visitors to the Glade Creek Grist Mill get to witness the fascinating milling methods of yesteryear.
 
The illustration for this stamp was made by Dan Cosgrove. He first produced art for the U.S. Postal Service in 2009 and has created the art for the Express Mail (now Priority Mail Express) and Priority Mail stamps since then.
