Situated next to the Smoky Hill River in Enterprise, KS, the Hoffman Grist Mill pays homage to Christian Hoffman (1826-1921) and his family.  Mr Hoffman purchased the water power rights at Louden Falls in 1868.  His first flour mill began operation at that location in 1869. Mr. Hoffman named the town that grew around his mill “Enterprise”.  A post office was established in Enterprise in 1873.
