The History of the Lalumondiere Mill
Once a grist mill owned by Patrick Byrne, the Byrnesville mill was the center of commerce for the young town of Byrnesville, Mo. from the mid-1800’s and into the 20th century. The town was also home to a grocer, dance hall, blacksmith, post office and several taverns, but it was the mill that put it on the map and drew farmers and families together.
In 1974 the Lalumondiere’s rescued the mill from decades of neglect. After securing the foundation, they blended their time raising children with the ongoing creation of their beautiful mill home and gardens.
