Dr Francis Longbourne Vickerman took up 1200 acres of land in Spring Creek in 1850 for the growing of wheat. In 1863 the mill and house were built. In 1865 he returned to practice as a medical doctor and sold the property to Mr Henry Redwood Jr. In 1870 his sons Joseph, Henry and Frederick took over the mill, grain store and house. The flour mill was powered by a large water wheel which turned water diverted from a dam upstream. The mill ceased producing in 1905.
The 3.8 acres of grounds around the homestead became a camping ground in 1960's.
