Est. 1838

Also known as the Levengood-Wagener Grist Mill, this property and others along the Ironstone Creek in southeastern Berks County, were important suppliers of many staples of late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

THE GOAL

Our goal is to preserve the former Glendale Flour Mills, a grist mill located in Douglass Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The mill was built in 1838 and sits along the beautiful Ironstone Creek, just above the confluence with Manatawny Creek. Glendale Flour Mills is just around the corner from the Pine Forge Academy and the Thomas Rutter mansion. The Colebrookdale Railroad runs the length of the mill property, from Ironstone Park, to the trestle at Pennypacker Creek. Our valley has an abundance of history and more information is being harvested every week.

Happy Mother’s Day! Here is one mother of a stone we will attempt to use for the new threshold into Glendale Flour Mills. Moving this with a tractor gives you even more respect for the ingenuity required to build grist mills, barns and homes way back! ... See MoreSee Less

If this were the late 1800’s to early 1900’s Samuel B. Wagner may have admired this same view. From the rear of his business at Glendale Flour Mills you can just see a bit of light downstream at the Nagle Mill, which Mr. Wagner also owned at one point, in partnership with Mr. Charles Wickersham, a florist and inventor from @Pottstown. #myberkshistory #pineforge #gristmill #pottstown #boyertown ...
