The mill is situated at the end of the long drawn village of Ellboegen in Innerellboegen. Apparantly the first mill was established here in the 16th century.
On one of the mills wheels one can find the date 1738 stating that part of the mill was restored in that year. The mill was in full function until 1951 so one can guess that the original mill was at least 200 years older than the part which was repaired in 1738, although no written testamonies can verify the exact date.
The mill belongs to 11 farms (Schneider, Truieler, Fuchs, Adamer, Kastner, Schrötner, Lener, Hinterlarcher, Singer, Käfer und Walzer), whose owners elect within a certain period one among them, who is for that period of time in charge and responsible for the function of the mill.
At the moment Franz Peer (Fuchsbauer) is the "Lord of the Mill" who, with the help of 2 local artisans Josef Eller (Wagnermeister) and blacksmith Ludwig Hölzl restored the mill in 1995/96, so the mill is now open to visitors.
A 30 minutes walk takes you from the village Ellboegen to the mill in and back via Oberelloegen. From May until the end of September the mill is in function from 2 pm until 5 pm for visitors, where the farmers show how the corn is grinded to flour. The farmer's wives will offer you in homemade food and drinks.
