In 1771, after shifting from tobacco to wheat as his cash crop, George Washington erected a new mill along Dogue Run. The innovative farmer-statesman added a wharf and began sending his fine milled flour by ship to Europe and the West Indies. In 1791, as soon as inventor Oliver Evans patented his milling machinery, Washington invited him to Mount Vernon to install the revolutionary technology in his own mill. Today, corn is stone ground by water power at George Washington’s Gristmill.
This colorful towel is printed with illustrated instructions for making Washington’s Gristmill Cornbread. The 30” x 30” towel is 100% cotton. Machine washable.
