3216 FAIR RD, Auburn, PA 17922  

A rare piece of Pennsylvania history, the John & Catherine Fisher Stone Grist Mill, built in 1821 and situated on over 10 acres of park like beauty is set in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. A long driveway leads to this 3 story, 48x44 stone structure was used to produce flour and other products for well over a century. A 12 ft. water wheel provided power to operate the milling of grains. A small office in the mill has a fireplace and 2 unique storage areas within the wide window sills. The charming, restored, brick miller's house was built around 1830 with handmade bricks from nearby Auburn. The home features 3 bedrooms, full bath, large living room/dining room, eat in kitchen, and sitting room. The residence is in excellent condition and every window captures the beauty of the grounds. The main features of this spectacular property are the picturesque mill pond, mill race, and the Bear Creek- a PA stocked trout stream. In total, there is over 2000 ft of park like stream frontage on both sides of Bear Creek and the mill race which flow into the mill pond in front of the mill. This creates your own private fishing paradise robed in unparalleled outdoor vistas. Other amenities of the estate include a 26x47 barn/storage building, enrolled in Act 319, and close to Hawk Mountain and the Appalachian Trail. The property lends itself well for a bed and breakfast, art studio, photo studio/wedding venue, restaurant, home based business, museum, or the ultimate, private, weekend retreat. Pleasantly situated in a quiet, serene setting, this one of a kind property is located just west of Auburn in Southern Schuylkill County. It is just 8 miles from the I-78/Route 61 interchange and a short commute to major metropolitan areas.
