During renovation of the mill in 2010 two date stones were found, one dated 1742 and the other dated 1841. The millers cottage was built in 1722.

The mill was a corn meal once owned by the Laird of Auchmedden (Baird family). Corn was stored in the upper part of the mill and dried on steel plates by a kiln fire in the middle part of the structure before being fed to the millstones below. The mill was powered by the Tore Burn, which was dammed about 1/4 mile away and the water fed through a sluice to the millpond.
