Hoffmeyer's Mill was established in
1906 by Henry Hoffmeyer. It was previously a wooden well-pump
factory. The original mainline-shaft dates back to the 1870's.
Additional equipment has been added over the years to manufacture
wooden sash/storm windows along with retail lumber and building
materials. When Henry died in 1926 his son Lorne took over the
business. Lorne retired in 1945, selling the mill to his nephews/employees
Carl and Otto Stoskopf. In 1974 Carl and Otto sold the business
to John and Sharon Ogilvie effectively making them the second
family to run the business. Otto and longtime employee Stan Schellenberger
continued to work with John since he only had business sense and
knew little about carpentry and lumber. Carl and son Steve Strasser
also came onboard during the 70's. John and Sharon's son Reg began
working in the mill fulltime in 1987.Then 10 years later, Reg
made the next major step in placing the Mill online in June of
1997 with steady growth ever since. January 2005 son Reg and wife
Ruth Ann purchased the mill from John and Sharon after they achieved
more than 30 years of operation of this business. Skeptics have
long since silenced, for now we are in our 44 th year and have
entered the 21s century... still working on 19th century technology!
We now help support 7 local families with the employment of our
