Cider Mill

Summary

The cider mill building was built at Greenfield Village in 1942 to house the cider-making equipment from Martinsville, Michigan. It is built on a bank, so the apples were brought into the building on the second floor, then fed by gravity to the first floor. The building's design is not based on any specific building.
