This mill is pretty popular and a frequent destination for local explorers, graffiti artists, hobos, and arsonists. It was the first steam mill in Romania, built in 1853 by two merchants, Gheorghe Assan and Ioan Martinovici. Even though it's considered a historical monument and it has a heritage value for the industrial heritage, the mill is going through an advanced state of decay, which is made even worse by the homeless scavengers that sell every piece of metal they can find here. The property is 5 hectares (12.3 acres) wide.
