Tourney Mill In the early 1880's Beulah had a stone ,grinder mill which was run by Sherwood. This mill proved to be to small and to slow for all the people that were using it, so in 1890 a new mill was built. John Fox was the owner, but the mill which used the flowing wat- ers of Sand Creek for its power, was built and operated by H.H. Reinecke. Reinecke had been a ship builder and a master mill wright from Germany and was a good choice for the job. The land for the mill was purchased from Alex Moorcroft in April of 1890. Reinecke later dropped out of the mill picture and in 1897 Fox deeded the mill and water rights to Frank Andrews. Andrews was a skilled miller from Michigan and he soon developed a reputa- tion for turning out quality flour. His Silver Star white flour brou- ght in farmers and ranchers from 100 miles or more at harvest time at full capacity the mill could turnout 100 sold to Tourney Mill Co. Flour was still ground from time to time through World War 11 but it's importance to the community gradually dwindled.
