Alley Spring has an average flow of 81 million gallons per day. Early settlers built a grist mill at the edge of the spring in 1868. In 1894 a steel roller mill was constructed on the same site and still stands today. Steel rollers that ground the grain were powered by a turbine instead of a waterwheel. Alley Spring is located about 5 miles from the town of Eminence.
