   Victims of both fire and flood, all but one of the Muskingum River mills have vanished. The lone survivor is the Stockport Mill, completed in 1906. Built strong enough to withstand a flood in 1913, the mill produced Gold Bond Pastry Flour and Pride of the Valley Flour for years. After 1942, the mill exchanged hands and duties several times before its final auction in 1998. Converted into a four story inn, interior renovations formed 14 guest rooms, accented with plenty of nostalgic antiques. The original architecture and building materials were preserved, and Stockport Mill Inn guests find historic paintings and local artifacts spread throughout the building.
   One of the most unique aspects of the mill was its twin Leffel turbines, used to produce electricity. Historic Plaque - Stockport Mill, Ohio Its original turbines supplied power to the Ohio village of Stockport, but were neglected and found to be beyond the point of restoration. The mill's replacement 100 year old turbines were located in Michigan and put to use providing electricity to the inn and restaurant.
     Fourteen suites are spaced throughout all four floors, providing full baths, private overlooks, and whirlpool spas. River view rooms are named for famous Muskingham riverboats, with the top floor luxury suite named after Captain Isaac Newton Hook. The Captain Hook suite, saluting the area’s riverboat captain, features space for six, gas fireplaces, kitchenette, dining area, hot tub, two bedrooms and a private terrace that overlooks the river and dam. A spiral staircase leads upward to the Eagle Watch, a roof cupola with incredible views.
