What is it, you ask? These are millstones which were used to grind wheat into flour. They stand on Highway 5 at the town of Buchanan. The plaque gives the early town history but provides no insight into who made or used these millstones. You can see by its shape that the one on the right was never completed.
As a farm girl, bread maker and fan of all things wheat, I had to get my picture taken with this relic of days gone by when prairie living required self sufficiency in all things, including our daily bread.
