The Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Month for July is The Mill. Located at 214 Main Street in Ruma, the building was originally built in 1872 and in a past life was actually a mill. GayLynn and Keven Kruse purchased the building in April 2019 and began making some updates including adding a kitchen, handicap access and a patio. The Mill opened in July that year and offers a great selection of food, wine, specialty drinks and more. When the weather is nice, quite a crowd can often be found enjoying the day on the large outside patio. A unique feature at The Mill is the antique ceiling fans on a pulley system. These fans were manufactured between 1902 and 1907 and have long been a part of the historic building.
