Became in 1763 property of G. de Goderville, the mill is mentioned from 1480. It occupies a fall of medieval origin. Important stores were then built and enlarged in 1780 by the addition of two wings, a forge and stables. Witness to the Atlantic trade that was anchored on the banks of the rivers, this grain factory provided the crews connecting Bordeaux and the West Indies with minots. Its location and its architecture attracted the conventional Romme, during the revolutionary period, who hoped to build cannons there. Sold as national property to the Rozier family, then leased to the Calvé family, the mechanized site was soon used simultaneously as an oil mill (stopped in 1987) and a flour mill (stopped in 1883). Attracted by the water and the power of the river, on which is installed a micro hydroelectric power station, a cardboard factory, installed on the site in 1927 still works.
