Overmyer Cider Mill in Fremont, Ohio

October 1917 show farmers lined up outside the Overmyer Cider Mill in Fremont, Ohio. In the fall, farmers from throughout Sandusky County brought barrels of apples to be pressed into cider. The charge was a penny per gallon of cider produced. Customers could purchase sweet cider, hard cider or apple jack, and vinegar for five to ten cents a gallon. The mill pressed 65,000 to 70,000 gallons of cider per season. The mill was moved in the 1950s when the land where it sat was developed as Potter Village Shopping Center.
