Feed Mill History 1890 - Originally owned and operated by the Jordan family, the mill was bought and moved to Nolensville in 1890 by a group of stock holders. Dr. David Rice Gooch, among the original stockholders, later purchased half of the stock in the mill company (a 50 barrel flour mill with a 48-inch grinding stone). In 1916, S. C. Battle purchased the remaining stock to become partners with Dr. Gooch. In 1920, Owen Allen Gooch, son of Dr. David Rice Gooch, bought S. C. Battle's shares to become half owner. On October 2, 1932, Owen Allen Gooch bought the remaining shares from his father to become sole proprietor. The original mill burned in 1933 and was rebuilt with the intentions of producing flour, but with the demand for flour decreasing, the mill was primarily used for manufacturing feed and still is in 2005. Owen Allen Gooch retired in 1959 and sold the business to his son David Allen Gooch. Other owners over the years include Mark Stinson and currently Darin Scheff.
