Several mills thrived along the many creeks and rivers in the early 1800’s but Daniel Yount’s Woolen Mill is the only textile mill that has survived and continues to stand along Sugar Creek. Located just 4 miles west of Crawfordsville, the B & B is in a safe quiet setting with gardens, woods, and many song birds, hawks, Great Blue Heron, and Eagles. The INN is a beautiful example of Federal Style architecture in 1851. Simple, in keeping with Daniel Yount's Quaker faith but with good proportions, solid thick brick walls and deep window sills. The Inn served as the boarding house for women who lived too far away to travel to work each day and The Yount family lived in half of the house. Registered guests are given a tour of the Mill and property with the creeks, fossils, and wooded trails.
Mills were extremely important to the lives of the early settlers and the development of the country but most of them have been lost. It is time to help the surviving mills with your support. We are members of Spoom.org. All income from the B & B and the Vacation Cottage (weekly rental) go toward the ongoing maintenance of the Yount's Woolen Mill & Inn, Yountsville, IN.
The Mill & INN are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Inn is a private residence which we share with Bed & Breakfast guests ( by reservation only). Many decorating objects reflect it’s history in spinning, weaving, needle arts such as samplers and quilts which are on display in the hallways and guest rooms. The decorating theme covers a broad range of decorative arts from Queen Anne period to the latest in contemporary design. Throughout the years of every family home, the decor changes and the “new” melds in with favorite pieces of the past. We would not enjoy being locked into one period from the past and we believe that history continues with the addition of the best from each period and each new generation. The Yountsville Mill & Inn are part of the country road route to Parke County covered bridge festival, Rockville festivals, State Parks, and antique auctions that are so prevalent around Crawfordsville. Find artist and photographer opportunities at Yount's Mill.
