Hope Mills 

Hope Mills is a station on the W. N. Y. & P. R.R., near the boundary line between Findley and Springfield. The settlement was made by the Junkin family. The village has grown up in consequence of the location of old-time mills at that point. They have finally disappeared by fire. In the creek near the mill three persons have been drowned. One of them was a lady school-teacher.
