John and James Merriwether and Leonidas Hardeman in 1874 built gristmill and sawmill at this site, with stone dam across the San Marcos. Bob Innes, John Orchard, J. K. Walker, and Fritz Zedler, as Luling Water Power Co., bought mills (1884), adding cotton gin. A milling veteran, Zedler in 1888 bought all stock and made eldest son partner. The gin, soon burned, was rebuilt. Units were added. Sons Herman and Charles joined firm. In 1890 and later, the Zedlers furnished water to city; 1894 and later, city power. In time various mill units closed; operations ceased about 1960.
Zedler Mill reviews
This is a wonderful historic location for meetings, weddings, and family celebrations. The landscaping is beautiful and adds to the scenery. The pavilion has large doors with windows that can be opened for easy outside access or closed depending upon the weather, a large kitchen, and a covered porch on 3 sides. The mill is well kept and makes a beautiful back drop for photos.
A week ago. Trail was closed according to the sign we saw after wards but gates were open. We got in and it was the worse trip ever. Besides all the trees in the river that block the way, they are full of spiders. You can'tmaneuver around the trees unless you actually get out of your boat , and then your either in deep water or knee deep mud. The scenary was beautiful, very relaxing otherwise. They are draining the river at the dam, so water is probably really low right now.
