    Gravelville was known for it flour milling in 1876. In it's heyday this little town had grown from two mills to having a shingle mille and joiner, a planning mill, a store, storage building, and stable shed. It was reported to have 150 homes in and around town. One of the great hang outs of it's time was the Blind Pig Saloon.

    But in 1905 when there was no more logs to be had along the great platte river, Charles Gravelville made the decision to move his business to Pierz. This little town during the milling years was governed by settles from the East coast.
