1 Some Lone Mill

Some Lone Mill

Posted on September 3, 2014 by team

Borisovka is a little village in Russia that has an interesting wooden mill built back in the XIX century. But people are rarely guests here today…

However, thirty three villagers still live on the closest farm, Tarakanov. This is where we can see a cool crane-shaped well.

And this is Borisovka.

Inside is a real flour milling facility!


It seems the USSR had a factory that made them serially.

We’re back outside. What made the mill operate? No wiring, no river nearby, and it does not look like a windmill…

Look, there is another empty house nearby…

One more abandoned house.

It was an elementary school.


“Faster, higher, stronger!”

Poems by local authors.

One local woman said some ten years ago the mill was still working. It was electrically powered (the wiring was stolen long ago) and grain was brought from everywhere.
