The origin of the Baissey Mill goes back to the Middle Ages. The buildings date back to the 19th century, the preserved machines and mechanisms of wood and iron are original and date back to the late 19th early 20th centuries. The first electricity came to the village in 1914 and it was then that a small electric machine was introduced into the mill. The Baissey Mill remains one of the last surviving witnesses of local rural industry.
The Mill was registered with the Additional Inventory of Historic Buildings in 1996.It was once the property of the Bishops of Langres,it then became a working tool to many generations of millers. . With its grinding stones, its waterwheel, its mechanisms from the 19th century, it is today one of the last traditional mills in the area.
Since 1980, the ‘friends of the mill of Baissey’ have worked to save the mill, years of voluntary work have made it possible to restore this rural heritage.Once again water is flowing into the heart of one of Champagnes villages, thanks to the mechanisms of its waterwheel.
