History of New Hope Mills, secret place outside Skaneateles 

History of New Hope Mills

Beginnings to the Weed family

New Hope Mills Inc has produced quality products for more than 180 years to earn its distinction as one of America’s oldest flour mills.

The flour mill was built by Judge Charles Kellogg. He was a member of the New York State Assembly (1808-09, 1821-22) and later reelected to Congress (1825). Judge Kellogg sold the mill to Horace Rounds in 1851. The mill remained in the Rounds family until 1947. The mill was then sold to Howard Weed, Hubert Latta, and Leland Weed; the mill became New Hope Mills at this time. Dale Weed became the sole owner in 2001 when his brother and co-owner David entered the presence of his Lord and Savior in Heaven.
